Shot in the spring of 2018 and involving approximately 40 students, Black Bus Stop pays tribute to the Black Bus Stop, an informal yet iconic gathering spot for black students on the campus of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville in the eighties and nineties. Young people could be found there listening to music, talking politics, dancing, flirting. Today, under the glare of the moonlight, black fraternity and sorority members reclaim these hallowed grounds as they chant and sway to the rhythms and memories of the past.
Rick Turner said:
The demise of the Black Bus Stop was because UVA caught the Black UVA Community “with our pants down” we weren’t paying attention. when we aren’t paying attention and when Black parents and Alumni are not actively involved they take those things from us that we enjoy and make us stronger
