Notes
  • Videodisc release of a 2012 production.
  • "This documentary focuses on the turbulent years from 1967 to 1974 when racial tension and violence spread throughout the Clark County School District. The film highlights the Class of 1971, the apex of the riots. Fights and arguments between African-American and white students in this North Las Vegas school were further inflamed by outsiders coming onto campus to stir up trouble. Confrontations with police in the volatile climate resulted in dozens of students being maced, one of them already very ill with leukemia sadly died, and a police helicopter was brought down by students throwing rocks. Former students such as local basketball star and Memphis Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins, and Rancho's first black cheerleader Louise Randall, tell of events they witnessed. All-American center Lee Gray tried to diffuse confrontations personally, and white athlete Danny Gray remembers feeling torn between loyalties to friends on both sides. Black Panther members, Greg and Kenny Porter, and ROTC student Daniel Crevoisier recall their experiences. Former Principal Larry Olsen gives the point of view of staff at the school during the unfolding drama" -- Container.
