Alexander Rodriguez & Ayana Smith, Teens Take Charge
 

Student activism has been central to efforts to desegregate New York City Public Schools. In 1964, 464,000 New York City public school students held the largest march of the entire Civil Rights movement to protest New York City school segregation. However, the event got minimal representation in the national news media, and a much smaller demonstration by white mothers opposing busing garnered more press coverage. Today as New York City students once again tackle New York City’s status as the most segregated school district in the nation, how does media representation and strategy impact their work? How do students transform the information landscape through unprecedented forms of social media and sharing?

Join a conversation with historian Matthew Delmont, author of Why Busing Failed and students from Integrate NYC and Teens Take Charge as they discuss the past, present and future of school integration work in New York City.
