A 1983 documentary chronicling the 30 year history of school desegregation efforts in Louisiana following the landmark Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. It follows several eras of school desegregation: the efforts of the Louisiana legislature to pass legislation maintaining segregated schools, the controversy and efforts to thwart the 1960 integration of the New Orleans public schools, token integration, the “freedom of choice” plans, forced integration following the end of “with all deliberate speed,” the effects of busing, and the status of remaining school desegregation court cases, including those in East Baton Rouge Parish and St. Helena Parish.
