Cindy + Josh | Pain & Promise | American Experience | PBS

Audio produced by StoryCorps Studios in partnership with GBH Boston.

In this recording, Seattle-native Cindy Buske is interviewed by her son Josh Soldewel about her memories of the desegregation process in Seattle schools. Cindy remembers Black children being bused from the Rainier Valley section of the city to her school in majority-white Arbor Heights, and the surprise she felt at the negative reactions of some peers and adults. She also shares her experiences being bused to a high school outside her neighborhood.

Audio recorded on May 21, 2023 at KCTS in Seattle
