This film chronicles four women's attempts to combat racial discrimination following WWII. Segments show how they challenged the denial of many constitutional rights to African-Americans, including the right to vote and freely mix with whites in public facilities. The program also examines how Americans reacted when Jackie Robinson broke the "color line" and began playing major league baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, and when the U.S. Supreme Court issued its famous Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka decision in 1954 that required America's public schools to admit both blacks and whites to the same schools.
