Boston’s Black History - Leaders of Tomorrow

BOSTON — From the Birmingham Children’s March of 1963 to the Children’s Peace Marches of the Black Lives Matter Movement, kids have made it known — they will not be left out of the fight for an equitable future.

In our half-hour special, 7th graders from Orchard Gardens Middle School read profiles of their own in partnership with Boston Public Schools.
