Join us for "Beyond Boston Busing," a reading circle hosted in partnership with Mass Humanities and discussion facilitated by Daniel Osborn. We will discuss the history of Boston desegregation and its connection to the film, "The Harvest" which explores the legacy of public school integration in Leland, Mississippi. Douglas Blackmon, co-producer of the film, will lead a panel discussion on November 1st with members from the Boston community who experienced the social and political turmoil of the Boston busing crisis. Reading materials are available at The Harvest Reading Circles. All participants are encouraged to read the articles before attending the Reading Circle event, and before the November 1st screening and panel discussion of "The Harvest." The readings can be downloaded from the Mass Humanities Harvest resources page. Street parking available and limited space available in Facing History parking lot.
