                    This documentary, produced by WILL-TV in 1969, looks at school busing and the grievances of black students, educators and parents in Central Illinois. Dissatisfied with the lack of black faculty, black history courses, and black voices in the educational process, Decatur high school students talk about a school walkout that they held on Nov. 25, 1968. Then, Champaign-Urbana educators assess the progress of racal integration in area classrooms. Champaign activist John Lee Johnson discusses the role of the Concerned Citizens Committee, which was formed to study the grievances of black people who were concerned about racial tension in schools.

Rabi, Barbara Tuchman and Joseph Campbell. Bill Moyers explains 20 Years of Listening to America: “It’s been 20 years since public television first took a chance on me. I remember clearly even now how it came about. William Morris of Harper’s magazine had sent me on a journey of 13,000 miles around the country to write a book called Listening to America. They read that book here at NET in New York, National Educational Television, and one day I answered the phone to hear a fellow say, “Moyers, don’t unpack.” Well, I didn’t and that was a lot of stories ago, a lot of frequent-flyer miles and so many memorable people, places and events that trying to pick my favorite is like having to choose among the flavors at the ice cream parlor. Some people, I’ll never forget from this journey. Some stories, I wish had never happened. The trip’s taken almost a third of my life and here are just a few moments from along the way.” Airdate: October 4, 1991
