The audience experiences the landmark Swann v. Board of Education case that completed the integration of American schools through the dream of a young African-American girl injured in a public school riot. With Jim Crow appearing in the guise of a giant trickster bird to battle the forces of progress, this award-winning epic begins at World War II and journeys to the moment when two innocent children can sit side by side en route to a new era in our nation's history.
