Part Three of the Series, "Rochester Remembers the Dream."

All this week, WXXI News presents a five part series called "50 Years Later: Rochester Remembers the Dream," to coincide with the anniversary of the historic March on Washington. In Part 3 of our series, WXXI's Hélène Biandudi Hofer reports on the decline of one of the major efforts of the civil rights movement - racially diverse schools. She looks at the current state of a Rochester-based school desegregation program that began in the '60s.
