Description

Dr. Mark Harvey, co-founder of the Jazz Coalition Magnet Arts Desegregation Program, reflects on his experiences working with Boston-area children before and after the 1974 Garrity decision, which required some students to be bused between Boston neighborhoods with the intention of creating racial balance in the public schools. He discusses the social climate in Boston during that time period; the importance of integration in both schools and communities; and the role of jazz music in bringing together people of different racial backgrounds.
