African American Education in Southwest Virginia

Produced for the Wytheville Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, this video provides a fresh look at African American education in America from the country's founding through the 1960's.

Long out of school, many Southwest Virginia residents share their memories of what it was like to attend school in a small one-room segregated school house.

Shot and edited by Ray Milograno, After Effects and Photoshop were instrumental in creating the look and feel of the piece.
