The Road To Brown

The Road To Brown

THE ROAD TO BROWN tells the story of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling as the culmination of a brilliant legal assault on segregation that launched the Civil Rights movement.

It is also a moving and long overdue tribute to a visionary but little known black lawyer, Charles Hamilton Houston, "the man who killed Jim Crow." THE ROAD TO BROWN plunges us into the nightmare world of Jim Crow that robbed former slaves of the rights granted by the 14th and 15th Amendments.

On The Line: Where Sacrifice Begins: Boston’s Longest Running Voluntary School Desegregation Program

When you think of busing in Boston, chances are it's about a dark episode in the city's history that sparks images of violence, intolerance, and racial tension. And while most of the historical spotlight has been on forced busing to desegregate the city's schools and its legacy, there's another Boston busing story that is lesser known.

This film highlights one of the longest running voluntary school desegregation programs in the country, its' historical impact on the city of Boston and those personally involved in the program itself.
