    History Detectives Special Investigations [#103] Texas Servant Girl Murders In 1885, six African-American servants and two white society women were killed in Austin, Texas - almost all bludgeoned with an ax, dragged from their beds and raped. As quickly as the killings started, they stopped. No killer was ever identified. Desperate to find someone to blame, the authorities first rounded up hundreds of black men. Later, they pointed the finger at a white man, James Philips, whom they accused of murdering his teenage bride. Although Philips was eventually acquitted, the trial was akin to the OJ Simpson trial, with sensational, lurid details spilling out in court. After the furor and panic died down, so did the memory of the killings. Can the History Detectives solve these murders? They pore over the records and apply cutting-edge police techniques to determine who killed the servant girls of Austin. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Frontline [#3214] Separate and Unequal 60 years after the Supreme Court declared separate schools for black and white children unconstitutional, Frontline examines the comeback of segregation in America.

Through the battle in Baton Rouge, Frontline shows the growing racial divide in American schools and the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education.
    Also this hour: Frontline updates the story of Omarina Cabrera, a struggling student from the Bronx who today is excelling at an elite prep school in New England because of a groundbreaking program to stem the high school dropout crisis. Drawing on the 2012 film, Middle School Moment, Frontline follows Omarina's achievements and challenges and shows the contrasts to her twin brother, who has remained in the Bronx.
