'63 Boycott

Season: 3
Eps: 14

On October 22, 1963, more than 250,000 students boycotted Chicago Public Schools to protest racial segregation, calling for the resignation of the superintendent. Combining archival footage with reflections today, ’63 BOYCOTT connects the forgotten story of one of the largest northern civil rights demonstrations to contemporary issues around race, education, school closings and youth activism.
