Busing in Boston: Desegregating the Nation's Oldest Public School System
Worsham, James
Civil Rights Digest, 7, 2, 2-9, W 75
The desegregation of the Boston Public School System, initiated on June 21, 1974 by Federal District Court Judge W. Arthur Garrity's Order, ended a decade of politically-inspired resistance in what is for the most part a working-class city of ethnic neighborhoods: the reassignment of about half of the first to twelfth graders began on September 12, 1974.
