a Political Voice
John D. O'Bryant" flyer (1977)
Growing political representation
created further platforms for African American voices. After initial
battles were won and lost, strong voices from within the community
worked to keep visibility and passions high; John D. O'Bryant, the
first African American on the Boston School Committee, was one of
those voices. He later became president of the committee and served
as a leading voice in the African American community throughout
his life, particularly during his long tenure as Vice President
of Student Affairs at Northeastern University. From the Citywide
Educational Coalition records.
