METCO Documentary Film, “On the Line: Where Sacrifice Begins” (4/28)

Sat, April 28 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm

First Parish Church, 7 Harrington Rd, Lexington.

Created by Mike Mascoll, a Lexington METCO graduate, this film documents the birth in 1966 of METCO, which is the oldest voluntary desegregation program. It highlights the METCO program through the experience of both METCO and Lexington families and discusses why METCO is still such an important and beneficial program in Lexington today. Barbara Hamilton, METCO Director at Lexington High School said, “Now more than ever our country is at risk of being divided again. This story stands as an example of how we can still come together.” Following the film, there will be a panel of METCO parents, alumni, current students and educators. Light refreshments will served.
