Abstract:

"This documentary examined what happened to an affluent American suburb with an outstanding liberal tradition when it was confronted with a civil rights controversy in its very midst. The issue which polarized the community was whether 45 to 60 Black children should be bussed in from nearby Queens."--1969 Peabody Digest. Examines efforts of pro- and anti-busing citizens' groups to win support for their cause. Includes footage of daily life in Great Neck; organizational meetings, door-to-door canvassing by pro-busing residents, and a pro-busing march led by high school students.

Includes pro-busing comments by many residents. The narrator explains that anti-busing leaders refused to be interviewed. Also includes footage of a mixed-race class of elementary school children learning about Frederick Douglass and discussing slavery. Includes footage of polling sites, where busing was voted down in a citizens' referendum, and of a meeting of the Great Neck School Board, where the proposal to bus students into the district passed by a 3-to-2 margin.
