Since its founding, Boston has had a strong focus on public education, but not everyone had access to the same education. A young girl of color, named Sarah Roberts, forced Bostonians to acknowledge this inequality when she and her father sued the City of Boston because of the evident inequity in the Public Education System.

Join us as a National Parks Service Park Ranger facilitates a dialogue discussing this court case on Boston Public Schools.
