Abstract
In preparation for the return of public schools in Prince Edward County, civil rights organizations and community groups established the Prince Edward County Free School. Concerned citizens hoped to ease the students back into public school after the absence of any schooling for the previous four years. The free school operated for a year until public schools reopened in fall of 1964.
