Alternate title:Report on integration
Integration : complying with Brown in 1957
Complying with Brown in 1957
Summary:In 1957, the eyes of America were on Little Rock, where the compulsory desegregation of Central High School was front-page news. But what about the broader picture? How successful had integration efforts in the South been in the three years following the Brown decision? This program, filmed in that year, brings together a panel of newsmen from the Southern Education Reporting Service to assess-against the backdrop of anti-integration violence-the overall progress being made in complying with the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling.
