Leveling Lincoln - To leveling the playing field, they leveled the school. An integration story.
The film, Leveling Lincoln interviews the children who lived the history behind the landmark desegregation case of Taylor vs. Board of Education of New Rochelle, NY - 1960-1964. This case branded the city the “Little Rock of the North” in the press, leveled an entire school, and brought the Civil Rights struggle to the “tolerant” North East. The Supreme Court made a covenant with the minority parents of our nation that they could seek a better education in every school district. With the best of intentions, New Rochelle Black families sent their small children into white schools. What were the intended and unintended consequences?
