Although slavery has been outlawed for nearly a century, segregation is legal. But white and Negro facilities are separate and unequal ... and the tension has reached a breaking point for the blacks of Clarendon County, South Carolina. When their request for a single school bus is denied by white school officials, a bitter, violent and courageous battle for justice and equality begins ... putting black against white and friend against neighbor all across the country.
