Jason Mazzone

Corner of High Street and Randolph Street in Farmville, VA.

Al Brophy

Yeah, nicely done, Jason, as always. Farmville, in Prince Edward County, has a long history with Civil Rights. While it's most remembered these days for shutting down the public schools, there's is also a long history of a robust and energized African American community. Melvin Ely tells part about of this story in the nineteenth century in his terrific book Israel on the Appomattox. WEB Dubois wrote about the Farmvile African American community in the early twentieth century. Then there's also the High Bridge, which to this day isn't the easiest to get to -- which was scene of one of the last battles of the Civil War.
