Two new films from AMERICAN EXPERIENCE examine the deeply mixed legacy of America’s efforts to racially integrate public schools in the 1970s and uncover shocking truths. 

Tonight, The Busing Battleground viscerally captures the class tensions and racial violence that ensued when Black and white students in Boston were bused for the first time between neighborhoods to comply with a federal desegregation order.

Watch AMERICAN EXPERIENCE tonight and tomorrow night at 9pm on GBH 2.
