EQUAL OR BETTER: THE STORY OF THE SILVER LINE
7PM - EQUAL OR BETTER (53min)
In 1987 the Washington Street Elevated train was torn down and community members furiously awaited rapid replacement service between the minority neighborhood of Roxbury and the employment center of Downtown Boston. Fifteen years later the official replacement service, The Silver Line, debuted. It was 'rapid transit' but looked and acted like a bus. Equal or Better: The Story of the Silver Line explores the history of transportation equity in America through the lens of three communities in Boston. It unearths a story of environmental justice, race relations, and probes how tax-dollars are allocated for transportation in this nation. .
