November 27, 2009 documentary – The Resegregation of American Schools
Segregated schools sound like a relic of America’s Jim Crow past. Legal separation that relegated Black students to substandard facilities and resources was “officially” done away with Brown vs. Board of Education. But segregated schools are making a comeback in practice. According to the Civil Rights Project at the University of California, Black and Latino students are more segregated now than they’ve been for more than four decades, and white students are continuing to be the most racially isolated.
