The Indianapolis City-County Council presented WFYI President Lloyd Wright and local filmmaker Ted Green with a special resolution Monday night for their combined work on "Attucks: The School That Opened a City."

The documentary, which premiered on WFYI Public Television in September, detailed the achievements of the city’s all-black high school that opened in 1927 and overcame tremendous adversity to produce a number of world-changing graduates.

District 9 Councilor William Oliver, a Crispus Attucks alum, presented the resolution at the outset of the City-County Council’s meeting Monday night. Several other Attucks alumni were also on hand for the presentation.

“Ted Green Films and WFYI Public Media truly embodied the African-American experience here in Indianapolis, and the importance of Crispus Attucks High School to the many students that walked its hallways,” Oliver said in a press release. “As an Attucks alum, I am grateful that this period in history has been accurately recorded and can be shared with many generations to come.”
