We've got a film, THE INTOLERABLE BURDEN, which presents one black family's
commitment to a quality education, from the pre-1965 time of segregation,
through desegregation, and through the recent period of resegregation.
It's been very well-received; in fact, it recently won the John E. O'Connor
Film Award from the American Historical Association.
