Meadowbrook Public Library and the Christiansburg Institute present the Edgar A. Long Book Launch on Wednesday, November 10, 2021.

Join us for the exciting book launch of Edgar A. Long's "A Vision of Education: Selected Writings of Edgar A. Long" hosted by Christiansburg Institute.

Edgar A. Long served as principal for the Christiansburg Institute from 1906 to 1923. The Christiansburg Institute was the first Black secondary school in Southwest Virginia. Although its 100-year history was literally buried in the destruction of the school’s building, dedicated students fought to preserve the legacy.

Beginning in 2020, Christiansburg Institute staff, board members, and descendants of Edgar and Anna Long collaborated to reprint a second edition of "A Vision of Education: Selected Writings of Edgar A. Long". The second edition includes a new original cover art piece by a Long descendant, a new preface, a letter from Edgar and Anna Long’s grandson, updated photographs, and an updated timeline.

The second edition of the book is made possible by a grant from the Virginia Humanities.
