Author Talk: Ken Woodley "The Road to Healing"

Former Journalist Ken Woodley will discuss his book, The Road to Healing, which recounts his successful fight to achieve reparation on behalf of black children denied an education in 1950s Prince Edward County. The book centers on Woodley’s efforts to establish reparation in the form of state-funded scholarships for African American students, finally realized in 2004. 

Woodley was a journalist for 36 years at The Farmville Herald, the final 24 years as editor. In 2006, the Society of Professional Journalists, Virginia Pro Chapter, presented Woodley with its prestigious George Mason Award for lasting contributions to journalism.
