This 2002 video documentary on the early years of school desegregation focuses on a small Alabama town whose principled school board willingly acceded to the Supreme Court's 1954 order to desegregate. The experiment worked until a Life pictorial spread alerted racist agitators, who deluged the town. Director David Appleby's tight storytelling excludes too much—brief interviews with former segregationists don't probe their current racial views. 56 min.
