See the film that started it all! These were some of the first voices we heard – the people that inspired the Union of Minority Neighborhoods to start the Boston Busing/Desegregation Project. Inspired by these voices? We want to hear your story AND we have many more stories we want to share with you.

To tell your story email We’re looking for stories of both people who were directly involved in school desegregation/busing and people who have experienced the impact.

We also need your support to share the stories we have collected. Please donate today to help us continue to broaden the voices that will lead to a new narrative about busing/school desegregation in the struggle for equity, access and excellence in Boston.

We are excited to announce that the Boston Busing/Desegregation Project’s first film Can We Talk? Learning from Boston’s Busing/Desegregation Crisis was accepted in the Roxbury International Film Festival. This film by Scott Mercer of Mercer Media Relations has been core to the project. It was key this past year to opening up conversation about the period and inviting people and communities into the project.

Our festival screening is scheduled to be held at Blackman Auditorium at Northeastern  University on Saturday, June 16 at 3:15pm. The festival  lineup  sounds great! We hope to see you there. Hear director Scott Mercer discuss the film and the Project on WBUR.
