Eleven African-American first-grade children initiated the desegregation of previously all-white elementary schools in Nashville, Tennessee in 1957. Nashville was one of the first cities in the South to act on the Supreme Court 1954 decision, Brown vs. The Board of Education. Compares the Nashville story with events that took place the same week at Little Rock High School. Some of the parents discuss the events of those first two days, including the bombing of one of the schools and the courage required to respond to the Court's landmark decision. Told through the use of first-person narratives and archival photos and footage.
