Many resources exist for learning about school desegregation in Boston. The resources we have compiled here draw directly from the Boston Public Schools Desegregation Collection. The timeline should give you a sense of the breadth of materials, while a map of 1964 freedom schools helps to illustrate the depth. Student created exhibits give insight into how these collections might be curated, while the BPS curricular materials provide an entry point for educators and students to think about the primary source materials of desegregation.
