In the segregated South, music inspires two marching band directors to cross color lines and give their students the opportunity of a lifetime.
Marching Forward is the history of two dedicated high school band directors—one black, one white—inspired by music to cross color lines in the Deep South and work together for the sake of their students. This courageous cooperation resulted in the experience of a lifetime for Orlando’s black and white students at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
