April 5, 1991 | JULIAN BOND, Bond , a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the American University in Washington is a writer, lecturer and civil - rights activist
"Separate but Equal," the excellent portrayal of the personalities and issues on opposite sides of the 1954 Supreme Court school integration decision airing Sunday and Monday on ABC, mirrors the optimism with which many black Americans viewed prospects for improvements in their lives in the mid-'50s. Despite a rigid system of segregation in the South, enforced by both state-sponsored and private terror, there were clear signs that change was in the offing.

In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a desegregation ruling in the Brown vs. Board of Education case that would dramatically alter the course of American life. But slowly and agonizingly. You get some of this enduring saga--mostly the judicial part--in "Separate but Equal," an interesting but labored two-part ABC drama airing at 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday on Channels 7, 3 and 10. As far as it goes, this is the "Rocky" of legal/civil rights stories.
