Recurring Event Event Series: Stories of Segregation

Stories of Segregation Series with The Carver-Price Legacy Museum

February 25 @ 11:00 am 4:00 pm

Free Registration encouraged.

As a special program for Black History Month, for the next four Saturdays (February 11, 18, 25, and March 4)Carver-Price alumni will be on site to talk to visitors about the exhibit and their experiences growing up under segregation.

The Carver-Price Legacy Museum tells the story of the struggle for civil rights and education equality following the Civil War within the space and history of Appomattox, Virginia’s Carver-Price School. Carver-Price was originally founded as a Rosenwald school for Black students in 1928, but it was built on the legacy of the Freedmen’s Bureau Schools and other local community schools formed in the late 1800s. Carver-Price is currently undergoing renovations and not open to the public, so The American Civil War Museum has partnered with them to create an exhibit in our museum giving visitors an overview of their history and how they fit into the broader history of civil rights in our country as a whole.
