series: Place Out Of Time - The Bordentown School
air date: 1/21/13 12:00 AM
This program tells the story of a school that existed during a 70-year period when America cared little about the education of African-Americans and discrimination was law and custom. The Bordentown School was an educational utopia. An incubator for black pride and intellect, it taught values, discipline and life skills to generations of black children. This story is told by Bordentown alumni, historians and remarkable archival footage. It also examines black education in America across three centuries, presenting a nuanced, rarely seen portrait of a separate black space; and a much-needed preface to the growing national discussion about historically black institutions and their role in nurturing identity and accomplishment. What was lost and what was gained in the march toward equality?
