Moakley Oral History Project OH-064
In this interview, Hubert “Hubie” Jones, a social worker as well as dean emeritus and professor at the Boston University School of Social Work, discusses the impact of the 1974 Garrity decision, which required some students to be bused between Boston neighborhoods with the intention of creating racial balance in the public schools. Mr. Jones reflects on the issue of busing’s impact on the Boston Public School system within a broader context, examining myriad problems contributing to the de facto segregation of the schools both prior to and after the 1974 Garrity decision. Mr. Jones also contemplates the issue within the broader context of race relations in the city of Boston.
