        Boston Desegregation

        This news segment from 1975 reviews the events of the first year of Boston's controversial school desegregation plan. Because of geographic barriers between black and white communities, a federal court instituted and enforced busing to desegregate the city's schools. The plan was greeted with white resistance, racial violence, and the boycotting of several schools.
