Building Bridges
Using a variety of innovative policies, the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights has encouraged and maintained racial balance in its schools and on its streets since the 1960's. Building Bridges is a 20-minute educational video about Shaker's Student Group on Race Relations or SGORR, a student-run program that works to combat self-segregation among Shaker students. For the past 14 years SGORR has sent integrated teams of high school students into the sixth grade classrooms to conduct a three-day program that teaches the younger students how to combat stereotyping and racial prejudice. The workshops encourage respect and dialogue between blacks and whites in the public schools.
