Description

In this interview, Richard M. Lane, an attorney and lifelong resident of South Boston, discusses the impact in his neighborhood 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. He reflects on the reactions to the busing plan among South Boston residents; the impact of media coverage on perceptions of South Boston; the effect that busing had on the demographics of South Boston and the Boston Public schools; and the overall ineffectiveness of the busing plan. Mr. Lane concludes with a brief reflection on the career of Congressman John Joseph Moakley of South Boston.
