A PLACE OUT OF TIME THE BORDENTOWN SCHOOL DVD

$14.95 (excluding tax)

The little-known story of the last all-black, publicly funded, co-educational boarding school North of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Founded in 1886, and forced to close in 1955 after the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the story of Bordentown is also the story of black education in America, across three centuries. Broadcast nationally on PBS in 2010, the film received the prestigious Christopher Award for television programs that “affirm the highest values of the human spirit.”
