Brown in Black and White

(2/22/06) A new documentary about school segregation premiered Tuesday night at the Levine Museum of the New South. "Brown in Black and White" studies a 1954 CBS TV show that aired after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered an end to segregation. CBS sent correspondents from Edward R. Murrow's show "See It Now" to Gastonia to talk with students about integration. WFAE's Jaime Bedrin spoke with documentary producer Steve Crump and asked him what attracted him to Murrow's program. Crump's documentary airs on Thursday, Febraury 23, on WTVI.
