As part of our series on the legacy of the Supreme Court's 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, NPR's Ina Jaffe explores an integrated school in Los Angeles. The ruling's desegregation mandate is challenged today in districts like Los Angeles, where 90 percent of public school students are minorities.
