The little-known story of the last all black, publicly funded, co-educational boarding school North of the Mason-Dixon Line. In a segregated society, The Bordentown School was an educational utopia and cultural oasis for black citizens in the Northeast and beyond. Forced to close in 1955 after the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the story of Bordentown is also the story of black education in America, across three centuries.

Professional Reviews:

"You could listen to a lot of dry lectures by a lot of windy history professors and still not learn as much about race issues in the century after the Civil War as you do in 'A Place Out of Time: The Bordentown School.'" - NEW YORK TIMES

"A thought-provoking documentary" - PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"A Place Out of Time makes an unassailable case for Bordentown's value over its 69 years. The larger issue remains a discussion-in-progress." - NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
