Halls of Anger (1970)


The court-ordered desegregation of an inner-city Los Angeles high school brings 60 white students into the predominantly African-American student body. African-American teacher Quincy Davis (Calvin Lockhart) reaches out to all his students, enticing Lerone (DeWayne Jessie) to advance his reading skills with racy paperbacks, protecting new student Douglas (Jeff Bridges) after a race-motivated beating and trying to quell a potential student strike led by the militant J.T. (James A. Watson Jr.).

I saw this movie when it came out and could realy relate to it as the schools I went to in Pasadena were the first non-southern school to be forced (by the courts) to integrate. This was the opposite of the movie in that blacks were bused to the white schools. Anyway, a real good movie that I remember to this day.

Peace. I've been looking for this film. An old favorite. As usual, you're right on target.

Happy Holidays
