Meanwhile, African-American students were still trying to find other means to begin equal educational opportunities. The case filed by Dr. Swann was making its way to the United States Supreme Court.

Background to the Film By April of 1971 (eleven months after the Kent State shootings), the high court delivered its judgment to the country. In Swann v Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education , the now famous case that permitted busing of students to achieve racial integration, the high court sent a message to the country. All schools had to become integrated immediately. That included schools in Alexandria, Virginia - a place where football was king.
