SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 13, 2019

Booker High School VPA Digital Film and Motion Design students, teachers and producers John Timpe and Lori Burton all participated in the creation of “Into the Storm”. The film tells the powerful story of BHS’s closing in the 1960s as a part of the district’s desegregation plan and  unfolds through the eyes of the high school’s Tornadoes basketball team, who won the state championship title in 1967, only to return to a closed school and tumultuous local climate. This student-created documentary explores the year that changed Booker High School and the city of Sarasota forever.
