RCC’s Lifelong Learning presents the American Story of Robert Russa Moton

Robert Moton

RILL will explore the life of Robert Moton, who was a valued advisor to five United States presidents, yet is virtually unknown to most Americans today.

From the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL), comes a three-session course celebrating the life of one of the most influential — but little-known — African-American leaders of the early twentieth century.

“Robert Russa Moton of Gloucester: An American Story” will be taught by Brian McGovern on June 14, 21, and 28 (Wednesdays), from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Moton Center, 2nd floor (stairs only), Holly Knoll, 6498 Allmondsville Road, Gloucester County.

Born in 1867 to former slaves, Robert Moton was a valued advisor to five United States presidents, yet is virtually unknown to most Americans today. From his humble beginnings, Major Moton went on to succeed Booker T. Washington as principal of Tuskegee Institute in 1915, then lived out his retirement years at beautiful “Holly Knoll” on the banks of the York River in Gloucester County.

According to popular belief, Martin Luther King composed his “I Have a Dream” speech at Holly Knoll; and it is certain that the United Negro College Fund was first proposed there. McGovern’s course will give you a fascinating look at some historical facts that never made it into your school textbooks.

Brian McGovern holds the degree of Master of Arts in History from Old Dominion University and has conducted extensive research on the life of Robert Moton. He teaches United States history as a dual enrollment instructor at Peninsula Catholic High School and also serves as an adjunct history instructor at RCC.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.

The Educational Foundation expresses sincere appreciation to the Bank of Lancaster’s Golden Advantage program, and to Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury, for their generous support of RILL in 2017.
