Led by a student named Barbara Johns in 1951, the strike at Robert Russa Moton High School in Farmville, Virginia, was a protest by African American students against the inferior quality of their education. This student-led civil rights protest led to a court case that eventually became part of the Brown v. Board of Education and ultimately led to the Supreme Court declaring segregation in public schools to be unconstitutional.

This DVD features a dramatization of the events on the day of the strike, interviews with the actual strike participants, and comments by the Honorable Robert G. Stanton, senior advisor to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior and former director of the National Park Service.
