Description

Otto and Muriel Snowden, along with Freedom House and other leading members in the black community in Boston got together and sent this critique of the School Committee's Desegregation Plan to Judge W. Arthur Garrity. The Plan was issued on December 16, 1974, and this critique aims to address issues that the people contributing feel were left out of the plan, and discusses racial imbalances that they hope will be addressed in the implementation of the plan.
