Description
This documentary aired on the premiere episode of Public Broadcast Laboratory. The segment is a profile of Louise Day Hicks, Boston public school official and later city council member who was in the national limelight in the 1960's for fighting a Massachusetts law ordering districts to desegregate or lose state financing, whose anti-busing crusade made her a national symbol of racial division, and who lost an election for mayor of Boston in 1968.
