    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Can We Talk. This impressive documentary offers powerful stories from the 1970s busing/desegregation crisis that changed Boston forever. Personal and intimate testimonials infuse Can We Talk with their candor and raw emotion: a bus driver who delivered children to schools and neighborhoods that didn't want them; a resident of the projects whose admittedly racist family refused to let her be bused to a school with children of color; a parent who got involved in politics by accident because of the forces of systemic racism that denied quality of education and simple respect. This program features a discussion with the Boston Busing Desegregation Project following the screening.
