Program Description
Program explores the impact of the modified desegregation plan that went into effect in Boston, Massachusetts, in May, 1976. Host Barbara Barrow visits the students and faculty of the William Monroe Trotter School in Roxbury's District 9 to explore the intent of Judge Garrity's altered desegregation plan via conversations with Lillian Wood (a learning center coordinator for the Trotter School), Dennis DeCoste (teacher at the Trotter School), and students. Topics include the enforcement of racial diversity, how the school curriculum has changed with the implementation of the plan, and how students and teachers feel about their new learning workspaces. At the time of the program, the Trotter School had an excellent reputation as a magnet school. Additional program segments include a previously aired in-studio performance from the musical "Raisin" (with Darren Green singing "Sidewalk Tree") and the "Community Calendar."
