A Study in Desegregation: Clinton, Tennessee—1957

Clinton High was the first school in Tennessee to desegregate—an experience that led to chaos and violence. In this 1957 See It Now broadcast, Edward R. Murrow reports on the town’s efforts to comply with the U.S. Supreme Court’s mandate in the face of coercive opposition. Footage of the Reverend Paul Turner preaching brotherhood and John Kasper expounding his rhetoric of intolerance creates a vivid portrait of the times. Officials, faculty, students, and local personalities add their views, rounding out the picture of the community’s successful struggle to reestablish law and order. Produced by CBS News. (55 minutes, b&w)
