Special Discussion Group: School Equity After Desegregation
Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 6:00 pm
The Harvest is a community engagement initiative examining the history and consequences of our nation’s failed effort to achieve racially integrated public schools. At Richards Memorial Library, the discussions on the readings will be led by Kevin Smith and will focus on what quality education means and how it can be provided to all children. Copies of the readings are available at the library or can be downloaded at http://masshumanities.org/programs/the-harvest/resources/. Registration is requested so we can keep the discussion group manageable.
This program is funded in part by a grant from the Pulitzer Prize Centennial Campfires Initiative and the Federation of State Humanities Councils. Additional funding has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
