The Road to Brown tells the story of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling as the culmination of a brilliant legal assault on segregation that launched the Civil Rights movement. It is also a moving and long overdue tribute to a visionary but little known black lawyer, Charles Hamilton Houston, "the man who killed Jim Crow." Screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with presentations about the history of desegregation in Orange County and the challenges facing us today. The audience will have an opportunity to share their experiences and insights.
