J. Keith + Joseph | Pain & Promise | American Experience | PBS

Audio produced by StoryCorps Studios in partnership with GBH Boston.

In this recording, Dr. J. Keith Motley & Joseph Feaster, Jr. remember their involvement in the implementation of Judge Arthur Garrity’s busing plan in Boston. Joseph tells of his work addressing concerns of Black parents as a member of the NAACP’s Boston branch during the crisis. Dr. Motley, who was a student at Northeastern at the time, recounts the violence and anger he witnessed as busing brought racist fury in Boston to the fore.
