Produced by Blue Ridge PBS, each program features writers who have a connection to Virginia. Recorded on location, each half hour interview delves into the stories behind the stories.
February 4 – Ken Woodley
For five years, beginning in 1959, Prince Edward County closed its public schools in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision. During that time, more than two thousand, predominately black students, were denied a formal education and so many lives were forever changed. We travel to the Moton Museum in Farmville to talk with Ken Woodley about his book, The Road to Healing: A Civil Rights Reparations Story in Prince Edward County, Virginia.
