This two-hour professionally narrated pictorial history of an American Institution covers the history of RCTS, a high school for Blacks in Randolph County Alabama, from 1919 - 1970.  Hundreds of previously unpublished photos show all aspects of the school. This DVD has been used in a local history class at Handley High School in Roanoke.  It documents the history of RCTS and shows how dedicated principals, teachers, parents, staff, students, and community advocates worked together to ensure a top quality education for Black children in the age of Separate-but-Equal and Jim-Crowism. Read the reverse side of the DVD cover. Read why and how the "Behind These Silent Walls" documentary and companion manuscript were created by clicking here.

The DVD was produced by RCTS graduates Alvin Thornton, Ph.D. ('67), Earnestine Thornton ('60), Lonnie C. Thornton ('58), and Gene Thornton ('62). The DVD is available for a donation of $15.00 or more (includes shipping). Send check or Money Order to:

The photo was taken in front of the school's main door. Principal Peeples is seated in the front row. This photo was used in the cover art of the "Behind These Silent Walls" DVD and manuscript of the same name.
