The film is about a group of idyllic African-American Catholic School students surprised by the abrupt closure of their beloved Immaculate Conception Academy High School, which was nestled inside a Black working class and professional neighborhood, called The Golden Blocks, located in Augusta, GA along the 314 mile long Savannah River.  Separated from the school and the dedicated nuns that had taught and nurtured them since first grade, the senior class became agents of social change when they accepted a history-making opportunity to integrate the esteemed Aquinas High on the Hill. “Two Classes of 1968” is a coming-of-age story under the bright lights of the Civil Rights Movement.
