Description

A letter to the Commissioner of Education Francis Keppel from the Chairman of the Greater Boston Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.) regarding the Boston School Committee. The Massachusetts Advisory Committee's report found the existence of de facto segregation in Boston public schools. Despite the evidence, the Boston School Committee refused to acknowledge the existence of the problem and C.O.R.E. urged the Office of Education to assist in this matter.
