THE CLINTON 12
Written and directed by Keith McDaniel
Narrated by award-winning actor James Earl Jones, The Clinton 12 tells the compelling story of one of the first integration of a public high school in the Southern U.S. following the historic Brown vs. the Board of Education Court decision. The title refers to 12 black teenagers who, in the fall of 1956, attended the all white high school in Clinton, Tennessee for the first time. This film portrays not only the courage of 12 young Americans who faced violent racial opposition, but also the determination of a small, predominantly white southern town that stood to confront bigotry and fear.
