Little Rock Central High School

WTTW-TV/Chicago Public Television, PBS

A series of television programs funded by the U.S. Office of Education and called As We See It brought many excellent presentations to viewers of WTTW/Chicago Public Television and PBS. One of these presentations, Little Rock Central High School, was so exceptionally well-done that the Peabody Board felt recognition was clearly in order. In what has been called a “real desegregation success story,” Little Rock Central High School will stand as an example of truly exemplary television. For this effort, a Peabody Award to WTTW-TV.
