Alvin Hall Goes Back to School

The Takeaway

When Alvin Hall was invited back to Wakulla High School in Crawfordville, Florida for a special honor, he thought it was a joke. He hadn’t returned to his high school since 1976 after he noticed that his photograph had been removed. Alvin graduated in 1970 as the school's first African-American valedictorian. In the years since he left Wakulla, Alvin Hall has become a successful author, and television and radio host. After nearly 40 years, Alvin returned to the school taking him on a small but important step in the struggle for racial justice in America. .
