Taped interviews with parents and school personnel offer adult perspectives and stimulate discussion among the young people participating. Repackaged repeat show (7/30/81) includes a discussion with Miss Black America Pamela Jenks; and a segment on the fire at the Elma Lewis School of Fine Arts, including footage.
