"Middle of nowhere"
Farmville is located about 40 miles SouthWest of Richmond Virginia.
I spent 4 years in Farmville while attending Longwood University. These years were some of the most exciting of my life, and I wouldn't change a thing.
"A tie to History"
The Moten School in Farmville Virginia was the first of a series of school walkouts by African-Americans in the 1950s which helped spark the Brown v.s. Board of Education lawsuit that we are all familiar with. This decision helped to de-segregate American Public Schools.
