On September 12, 1974, police were stationed outside Boston schools as Black and white students were bused for the first time to comply with a federal court desegregation order. Shocking violence, directed mostly at children, ensued. THE BUSING BATTLEGROUND illuminates the volatile effort to end school segregation, and the decades-long struggle for educational equity that preceded the crisis.
