Ball field on S. Main Street in Farmville, Va., adjacent to Robert R. Moton High School, which was known as Mary E. Branch Elementary School #2 for African Americans in 1963. This is one of the two sites where the Richmond Volunteers to Prince Edward County conducted recreational and educational activities for school-less African Americans teenage boys in 1961-1962. In the background is the previous African American high school, and the cemetery where L. Francis Griffin, Jr. is buried. Longwood College had taken possession of the field by 1998.
