Separate and Unequal

Separate and Unequal

Sixty years after the Supreme Court declared separate schools for black and white children unconstitutional, school segregation is making a comeback. What’s behind the growing racial divide in American schools — and what’s the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education? In part two, Omarina's Story, FRONTLINE revisits a student who made the most of her "middle school moment".
