The renaming of “Negro Head Rock”

Ron Carson showcases an old check with an emblem of what used to be called “Negro Head Rock” and shares the story about his grandmother’s 1968 petition to have it renamed. It’s now known as Stoneface Rock. Interestingly, former Student Health Coalition (SHC) participants active with the clinic in St. Charles, Va. recall having referred to it as “Nixon Head Rock”.
