Blue Ridge PBS visited the Booker T. Washington National Monument in Hardy, VA as part of the station's "On the Road" series. Check out the video, which includes students and teachers from Roanoke's Lucy Addison Middle School. The school's visit and video productions about this historic site were supported by a grant from WETA. The purpose of the grant was to engage new and traditionally underserved audiences in the educational richness of this local treasure.
Additional video was produced by students from the Burton Center for Arts and Technology, a high school in Roanoke, VA.
