Legacy Projects > Attucks: The School that Opened a City Attucks: The School that Opened a City

Crispus Attucks High School, opened in 1927 when the Ku Klux Klan ran Indiana and its capital city, was built to separate, to isolate, and to fail. It did just the opposite. Overcoming tremendous odds, Attucks produced surgeons and scholars, scientists and military leaders, world-class musicians and athletes. Over time, that success, and the grace that accompanied it, helped open the eyes of a new generation and change this city and state for the better.

For the first time on film, “Attucks: The School that Opened a City” celebrates this seminal chapter in Indiana history. The film will engage viewers as never before to celebrate Crispus Attucks High School’s triumphs and learn from its lessons.
