The Color Line on Campus—1963

For most U.S. colleges today, racial diversity is a goal—but almost nine years after the Brown decision, it was quite another story. Relevant to recent challenges to affirmative action, this 1963 program features interviews with James Meredith and other African-American students who broke ground—and tradition—at universities in the South. Faced with attitudes ranging from passive tolerance to violent rejection, each had achieved enrollment, but not acceptance. JFK’s stance on desegregation and inquiries into the role of the NAACP broaden the program’s historical context. Produced by CBS News. (30 minutes, b&w)
