Today in our morning seminar, participants learned about the ways in which public policy and social attitudes toward race influenced educational access for students in the Boston Public Schools prior to 1974, and how individuals and groups challenged these ideas by watching a film clip from Eyes on the Prize ("Keys to the Kingdom") and examining the facts and statistics on Boston Public Schools then and today.
