In 1958, the Commonwealth of Virginia led other Southern states in refusing the U.S. Supreme Court's mandate to integrate its public schools in the aftermath of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. Several counties "locked down" or closed their public schools altogether - one for as long as five years - rather than allow black students into all-white schools. LOCKED OUT: THE FALL OF MASSIVE RESISTANCE sheds light on this dark moment in history through interviews, academic commentary and archival footage from the era. The documentary, produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the so-called Massive Resistance laws, offers first-hand accounts from African-American students who found themselves on the front lines of this desegregation battle.
