Annual Family Challenge

Strength. Through Love and Unity.

Thank you for your interest in the Moton Family Challenge, our most impactful and rewarding, annual fundraising activity.

Each year we join together in a competitive spirit of unity, to honor the families whose school-aged children were at the center of our 1951-1964 fight for Civil Rights in education.

Let us continue to keep our commitment to preserving and interpreting this important story for current and future generations. Call us at (434) 315-8775 ext 0 to find out if your family has already joined, or to sign up.

Thank you, again, for your support.
