Fall Forum

CREATED EQUAL

Striving toward Justice for All


Sunday, November 9, 2014, 4:00-5:30 PM 
John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
Columbia Point, Boston


Free and open to the public

Seating is limited. Look for registration announcements in September.

The forum, a temporary replacement of our annual fall symposium, marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 40th anniversary of the legal proceedings that led to court-ordered busing to desegregate Boston Public Schools.

Distinguished panelists will examine legislative and judicial efforts throughout our American history to create a more equitable society and discuss the potential of each to confront the growing inequalities of our time.
