Book Discussion: Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County
Book discussion: Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County: A Family, a Virginia Town, a Civil Rights Movement by Kristen Green.
Following the Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954, mandating the desegregation of public schools, Virginia instituted a program called Massive Resistance and closed their public schools rather than comply. Prince Edward County kept those schools closed for 5 years. Kristen Green grew up in that county and tells its shameful story. For those who wish to read the book, it is available through Amazon. Led by Ann Foard.
