    I’m here because I saw John Oliver mention this on his show.

    Another fine film lost in the dustbins of Hollywood.
    All the press of the time was on the White schools in Boston being forced to integrate. But the black schools were not any more thrilled at the idea. The Washington DC area had a lot of race riots when the black students wanted to stay in their neighborhood schools.

      I remember catching only the last 30 minutes of this film–by accident, ‘natch!–thanks to channel flipping (SHOWTIME ran it when I caught it). And, yea–I never even knew it existed, because, like you said, black films of quality just get tossed into the Hollywood ether. And, ALSO from DC, I was the generation that started school–just after–most of the racial turmoil in the school system (I entered the “premier” HEAD START year, in 1966–just missing the true turmoil by 2 1/2 years.)…although, at the time, we still had “Black Schools” and “White Schools” only a block, or two, from each other (as was MY School-s). And, to RARELUST–Keep on Rocking and bringing out these gems just like this.
