Sixty years after the Supreme Court declared separate schools for black and white children unconstitutional, school segregation is making a comeback. In "Separate and Unequal," airing July 15, FRONTLINE travels to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where a group of mostly white parents are trying to form their own city with its own separate school district, leaving behind a population of black students.
