Civil Rights in Education Heritage Trail
— Appomattox, Virginia - Appomattox County —In 1929-30 the Appomattox training school was built on this site with funds raised by Mozella Price, who served as Supervisor of Appomattox Counter Negro Schools from 1919 to 1963. It was a cinder block building, employing four teachers. At the urging of Mrs. Price, the building was extended and remodeled in 1950-51 to be more in line with Virginia's "separate but equal" provisions. The improved school was renamed the Carver-Price School in her honor in 1952.
