RACE & JUSTICE

For the fortieth anniversary of busing in Boston, the Schuster Institute partnered with WGBH Boston Public Radio-TV-Digital to explore desegregation in Boston, Massachusetts and Jackson, Mississippi. 

In every field of endeavor, in every system of power, people of color disproportionately face stiff headwinds. Race often influences where someone can own a home, who is hired or promoted, how personalities are perceived, rates of arrest and incarceration, quality of medical care, and much more. Past discrimination accumulates, as Ta-Nehisi Coates explains, and continues affecting health, wealth, and well-being today.
