The Hedgepeth-Williams Story [Video]

Here's the penultimate episode of Classroom Close-up's 20th season.

It includes a story about how NJ's public schools were desegregated in 1944 by the New Jersey Supreme Court's decision in the case of Hedgepeth-Williams v. Board of Education, Trenton, NJ. Ten years later, the Hedgepeth-Williams case would be cited as precedent in the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education, Topeka, KS which banned school segregation nationwide.
