A Documentary by Meredith Taylor about the desegregation of Great Mills High School in Great Mills, Maryland.

. . . a powerful story, well told.
Dr. Charles Holden, St. Mary’s College of Maryland History Department

The documentary is dedicated to all the generous people who, by sharing their memories, made this documentary possible, and to the students and teachers who took part in the project but whose stories have not yet been told.

 

"With All Deliberate Speed: One High School's Story"



$15 + $5 s&h

"With All Deliberate Speed: One High School’s Story" grew out of a project led by Merideth Taylor with support from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions. In 2003-2004, Great Mills High School students and teachers participated with Taylor in interviewing former students, teachers, and administrators who experienced the desegregation process at the school between 1958 and 1972. At the end of the year, students presented scenes drawn from the interviews for a 50th Anniversary celebration of the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling. In 2007 and 2008, Taylor conducted subsequent video interviews, and the documentary is primarily drawn from these interviews, but reflects the information from over thirty interviews conducted between 2003 and 2009.

Meredith Taylor awarded for her documentary about desegregation of Great Mills High School, With All Deliberate Speed: One High School's Story
