Abstract
A segregated public school for black students, the Booker T. Washington Junior High School will move from its current building to a new one because of the structure's dangerous proximity to a major highway, as well as its insufficient size and facilities. Footage contains scenes of students in the library and dining hall, administrative offices, teachers, the nearby highway, and students in a classroom.
