Attucks: The School That Opened a City

Attucks: The School That Opened a City

Special | 1h 53m 42s | Video has closed captioning.

Built while the Ku Klux Klan ran Indiana, Crispus Attucks High School was designed to fail. Instead, for more than 40 years, the students who came of age within the brick walls of Attucks overcame a system designed to belittle them. Over time, their successes and the grace that accompanied them became a grassroots agent for integration, winning over younger generations of Indy’s white population.
