This past summer the Boston Busing/Desegregation Project had the honor of having international truth project expert Eduardo Gonzalez of the International Center for Transitional Justice speak to the Learning Network about Truth seeking projects. BBDP was inspired by truth-seeking  processes around the world. We believe the Learning Network must learn about these processes in order to design one that works for Boston and for looking at the busing/desegregation era.
