Description

In a letter sent to METCO directors from Otto and Muriel Snowden, the Snowdens thank METCO for their support. It seems that the Snowdens were going through a difficult time at the height of Boston desegregation, and we can assume from this letter that is addressed to "ALL of our wonderful friends and relatives," that they included METCO directors among their most trusted confidantes.
