No American story is more dramatic than the 20th-century struggle for Civil Rights. The Virginia Civil Rights Memorial on Capitol Square recognizes Barbara Johns, her fellow students from Robert Russa Moton High School and their parents, and community leaders and attorneys who risked everything in the struggle to gain full and equal rights for all. Others recognized in the fight for civil rights include an interracial couple who wanted to get married, a woman riding a commercial interstate bus, a mother expanding education for her children, and protesters in Danville and Farmville.
