Description
Program Description
"'Climb though the rocks be rugged.' "That was the motto of the Lincoln School, and that was the indispensable lesson it [taught]. "In 1960, Horace Mann Bond, a noted educator, was commissioned to research the factors that enabled some poor, rural blacks to excel academically. He discovered that an amazingly large number of black PhD's or their ancestors had attended an exceptional school in Marion, Ala., --the Lincoln School. "In 'Where Once We Stood' Bond's son, Julian Bond, civil rights activist, teacher, and former state legislator, tells the story of what his father called 'the foremost black secondary school this country had ever known.' "Through interviews with former students this program shows how an institution started by nine ex-slaves shaped generations of students who became prominent leaders in business, education, and politics. Today, more than two decades after the school closed, many of them proudly admit that their experience at Lincoln was the most important event in their life. "'Where Once We Stood' is cosponsored by the Alabama Humanities Foundation, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The production was also supported by Alabama Public Television and the Perry County Bank of Marion, Ala. The show is a production of University of Alabama Television Services."--1989 Peabody Awards entry form.
