Description

The Black Community Caucus of Boston sent this memorandum to organizations in the Greater Boston Area that were involved in the process of school desegregation to announce an Assembly of Justice. The document outlines the proposal that the Assembly will present, as well as its primary concerns and requests for making the process of desegregation safe for black children. The Assembly of Justice called for the rights of black students to attend the schools that they were being sent to without having to deal with abject racism and violence on the part of whites in the area.
