We turn to an important piece of Baltimore Civil Rights history as we talk with filmmaker Pete O’Neal about his new documentary, All the King’s Horses: The Story of Gwynn Oak Park. The film explores the struggle in the 1960s to desegregate Baltimore’s Gwynn Oak Park, and features an interview with our own Marc Steiner. All the King’s Horses debuted today at Morgan State University’s Student Center Theatre. We will also hear from Pace McConkie, Founder and firector of the Robert M. Bell Center for Civil Rights Education at Morgan State University.
We discuss segregation based on race and class in Maryland public schools. Our panel includes Thurman Bridges, Associate Professor of Teacher Education at Morgan State University; Dr. Jeff Menzise, licensed school psychologist in Washington, DC and author of Dumbin’ Down: Reflections on the Mis-Education of the Negro; and Kenneth Haines, president of the Prince George’s County Educator’s Association.
