Color Lines is the story of a town that thought it had found the key to America's dilemna of racial harmony. Teaneck, N.J., a community of 38,000 residents, five miles outside New York City in Northern New Jersey, was integrated, suburban, middle-class, and politically liberal. It was largly regarded as a racial utopia. That image was shattered on a rainy night in 1990, after a white police officer shot and killed a black teenager. (September, 1995)
