Graphic memoir Cambridge Schools Chronicled takes you through Barbara Thomas and Timothy Wall’s ridiculous journey from selecting a public school for their mixed race son, to witnessing white flight, facing implicit bias, and finally to their decision to head to private school.
Barbara and Timothy go into great detail about their initial success of finding a great K-8 school for their son, and their ultimate disappointment in Cambridge’s sole public high school. Cambridge Schools Chronicled opens up the conversation about systemic racism, opportunity gaps, and the precarity of the U.S. educational system.
This comic is collected in Cambridge Chronicled.
