Moakley Oral History Project OH-039
Mr. Anthony Voto reflects on his experiences growing up in East Boston, Massachusetts, following the 1974 Garrity decision, which required students to be bused between Boston neighborhoods with the intention of creating racial balance in the public schools. Mr. Voto discusses his childhood in East Boston; his experiences attending a magnet school; the appreciation for different cultures and people that he gained from attending a school with a diverse student body; and the positive impact that he feels the results of the Garrity decision had on the Boston Public Schools.
