“When we fight about education, we’re fighting for our lives. We’re fighting for what that education will give us...We’re fighting for a lot of things. This is a total fight with us.” -Ruth M. Batson
A graduate of Boston Public Schools (1939), Ruth Batson was an activist whose work for educational equality and the integration of Boston schools spanned over 30 years. Her activism radically transformed these schools; yet access to quality education is still something parents, students, and educators are fighting for.
