Universities Partner in BBDP Story Collection

Posted: November 12, 2012 by Donna Bivens in Uncategorized

Since its beginning Boston Busing Desegregation Project has had tremendous support from universities. The story collection phase of the project is no exception!

Writing students from Chris Gallagher’s Northeastern University Masters-level class are collecting stories of those who impacted or were impacted by the busing/desegregation crisis. They also helped produce the summary of the phase one report. Students from Lesley University will also be adding to this effort.

 University professor (and Steering Committee member) Gail Burton has involved her Roxbury Community and Emerson College theater students in using theater techniques with students, parents and teachers to help develop their BBDP stories. This fun, interactive approach is new for the Project. It offers great group building, creativity and opportunities for artistic expression. We encourage you to sign up if you are a teacher or parent.

As the story collecting continues and with the help of our partners, we look forward to offering many diverse ways of story telling and story collecting. We hope to see you at one or more!
