Reaching the Light:
Reaching the light is a documentary that centered on the desegregation of what was formally known as the University of Chattanooga, but we now know as the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Elder members of the community relived their segregated experience in the City of Chattanooga as well as on the campus. Though this tough tale tugs on the strings of your heart, it enlightens viewers on the change and growth of the university.
As a thank you for their testimonies the individuals in the documentary were invited to a luncheon on campus to speak with individual members of the university. The luncheon brought in students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. Speakers talked to a number of people answering any questions they may have. This luncheon was but a symbol of change that those who were interviewed had hoped for.
