Alternate title:Busing : complying with Swann in 1976
Complying with Swann in 1976
Summary:In 1971, when busing was first mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Swann ruling, it strongly polarized public opinion in many communities. Filmed only five years after the controversial precedent was first put into practice, this news program looks at events in Charlotte, North Carolina and Boston, two places that stand as icons in the busing battle.
