Inspired by the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King’s speech on the Boston Common in 1965, Roxbury Weston Programs began in July of 1965, with a summer camp housed half time at the Case Estates, in Weston, and half time at the Blue Hill Christian Center, in Roxbury. The purpose of Roxbury Weston Programs was to bring families together from both communities, to create a learning environment in which to celebrate their diversity and achieve excellent early education for all. The impetus was to satisfy the prerequisite of the Weston School Committee that before the town could join the newly established METCO program (a state run program that voluntarily bussed children from Boston to suburban schools) proponents within the Town of Weston must prove that the Boston preschoolers were as well prepared as their Weston counterparts. The solution was to create both a day camp and a preschool to educate children from the city and the suburbs together.
