Organizing for better schools and desegregation 1960-1973, largely led by the Black community.

This laid the ground work for the 1974 federal court decision finding Boston's schools were segregated and ordering busing to desegregate them.

Panelists include Hubie Jones, Jean McGuire, and other participants in these events and moderated by Kim Janey, former Mayor of Boston who was bused as a student in the Boston Public Schools.

Location: Roxbury Community College 1234 Columbus Avenue, in the Media Arts Building, located across from the Roxbury Crossing Orange Line MBTA Station and the Reggie Lewis Center.
