Play Video

In May, 1954, the Brown v. Board of Education by the Supreme Court decision ruled segregation in the country's public schools unconstitutional.


That September, Milford, Delaware attempted to integrate its high school. This documentary traces the history of desegregating the country's public schools and that failed attempt in Milford.


The program then profiles the changes that led to the successful attempt in 1962. 

This program is partially funded by Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities and Berkana, Center for Media and Education, inc.
