Lincoln School Documentary Public Broadcast Premiere
February 5 @ 10:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Ohio Humanities’ documentary film The Lincoln School Story premiers on WOSU TV in Columbus!
When their school district refused to integrate after Brown v. Board of Education was decided in 1954, a group of Black mothers in Southwest Ohio marched their children to the white school, demanding admission, only to be turned away every day for two years. Their activism resulted in one of the longest sustained protests of the civil rights era. Today, their children remain committed to telling the story of their mothers’ activism and of Ohio’s role in the movement.
