Advancement for Students of Color in Boston
This tour focuses on monumental schools that spread awareness for the need for equal access to education for all. Of our three schools, two in our tour were the first of their kind, providing access to opportunities for under-represented communities within Boston. The first stop on our tour was one of the first to integrate and have an African American woman teach, while our second stop was the first to provide bilingual education to Latinx students in the Boston area. Our final stop is also a school, but rather than its educational achievements being the main focus, the school acted as a catalyst for the movement of integrated and equal schools in Boston. Together, these schools tell a bigger story about the fight for equal access to education for the children of Boston.
