EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Elizabeth rouses her students' interest in the history of their school, John Philip Sousa Middle School, a National Historic Landmark in the nation's capitol because it is one of the five schools involved in the Brown v. Board decision. The students learn that their school building will be torn down as part of a school redesign -- and this sets them on a campaign to preserve it. "They said, 'But why won't the community stop it?' I said, 'You're the community. . .so what are you going to do about it?'"
