Description

This letter to Mayor White explains the mother's position against busing for her daughter. The father of the child is black and the mother is white. The mother is afraid that if her daughter is bused to South Boston she will be in danger because of her father's race, and if she is bused to Roxbury she will be in danger because of her mother's race. The letter also explains the mother's ideas for alleviating the issues within Boston.
