The Boston Public Schools Desegregation Collection
In an effort to spark informed, city-wide conversations about Boston’s struggle to integrate Boston Public Schools and the resulting court-ordered desegregation effort commonly known as “busing” (1954-1988), area archives have made a
treasure trove of primary sources freely and publicly available for research.Nearly 4,500 items from Boston’s school desegregation history are now available through the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections.
