TEACH US ALL | Synopsis
Through case studies in Little Rock, New York City and Los Angeles, TEACH US ALL examines one of the most urgent civil rights issues of our time; a quality education for all children. TEACH US ALL chronicles the landmark 1957 "Little Rock Crisis" were a group of African-American students known as the Little Rock Nine courageously attempted to defy the notion that skin color should determine educational access by integrating an all-white southern high school to the present day disparities in access and inequalities in education that are culminating into a re-segregation of schools across the nation.

TEACH US ALL seeks to bring the critical lessons of history to bear on the current state of U.S. education system and investigate: 60 years later, how far have we come – or not come – and where do we go from here?
