During their trip to Harpers Ferry, Laurita and Lauren visit Storer College, the first HBCU in West Virginia. The school was established in 1867 by Freewill Baptists as an effort to educate former slaves after the Civil War, and operated until 1955. In 1962, the National Park Service took over the preservation of the campus. Today, the site tells the inspiring story of the educators and students.

John Brown and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park
S1 E5 - 3m 33s
During their trip to Harpers Ferry, Laurita and Lauren explore the town's influential role in American history. On October 16, 1859, abolitionist John Brown launched a raid on the federal arsenal in Harpers Ferry. He hoped to capture the 100,000 weapons and use them in a war, which would free slaves in the south. Today the event -- and John Brown's story -- lives on at the Harpers Ferry NHP.
