St. George Debate Goes National, Skin Cancer, B.R. Irish Film Fest Preview

City of St. George Debate Goes National () The vigorous and passionate debate over the proposed pullout of St. George from the city of Baton Rouge is captured in the provocative PBS FRONTLINE documentary Separate and Unequal. This is not something unique to Louisiana but Baton Rouge was of particular interest due to its history of having the longest running desegregation case in the country. What does the St. George movement say about race, class and public education? Producer Mary Robertson spent nearly a year meeting with and interviewing the major players on both sides of this controversial issue. She talks candidly with Shauna Sanford about the unlimited access she was given and the difficult questions that this unfolding story raises. SHARE
