Attucks: The School That Opened A City
Attucks: The School that Opened a City captures both the history and legacy of Crispus Attucks High School in Indianapolis, exploring the racist origins of a school designed to fail, and the inspiring tenacity of teachers and students that ultimately prevailed. Built in the 1920s at a time when the KKK was bigger in Indiana than in any other place in the country, the high school was designed to keep black students oppressed. Through the stories of graduates, relatives of faculty, historians and more, this documentary shows the power of the human spirit to rise above obstacles, and offers a message of hope and inspiration for generations to come. Two hours.
