Join us for this event in sponsorship with the Prince Edward County Branch NAACP. You won't want to miss it.


In her new book, We Face the Dawn: Oliver Hill, Spottswood Robinson, and the Legal Team that Dismantled Jim Crow, Margaret Edds tells the gripping story of two pioneering Virginia lawyers who were essential partners of Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., in demolishing forced segregation in American schools, housing, and transportation. Their contributions to Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka and other seminal cases helped transform a state, a region, and a nation.
