In 1951, Barbara Johns, a 16 year old student at R.R Moton High School walked out of class to protest the conditions at the school compared to nearby Farmville High School. The strike helped spark the desegregation movement in America - which lead to the famous Brown vs Board of Education. Dorothy Vaughn who was depicted in the movie 'Hidden Figures" taught at R. R Morton High School. Lunch on your own.
