Robert Russa Moton Museum

Adjacent to Longwood University is the Robert R. Moton Museum facility, where a 1951 school strike led by 16-year old Barbara Johns helped bring about the legal challenge to school segregation.

The story of the strike, and the later Prince Edward County school closures, is captured at the award-winning museum. MISTERS enjoy extensive involvement with Moton, where they work with Cainan Townsend, the museum’s education director and an alumnus of the Call Me MISTER program.
