A video made by students in Chestnut Hill looks at segregation in Boston

Two students from Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill produced a short film that all Bostonians should check out. The video created by Sahlu Loulseged and Dylan Curran is titled “Segregation in Boston,” and you can find it on YouTube. It’s just over four minutes long but covers a lot of ground, from the racial makeup of the city to the 1970s busing crisis, and includes a memorable image of a US Census map that shows just how segregated Boston’s neighborhoods are. Loulseged and Curran also conducted several person-on-the-street interviews and asked for perceptions of Dorchester. We don’t want to give it all away, so check out the video for yourself. It’s definitely worth watching.
