The Human Relations Committee eventually was able to form an agreement known as the Treaty of Cambridge. The agreement temporarily brought an end to the violence and broke barriers in Cambridge by laying out a path for the future integration of the city. The treaty met many of Richardson’s demands including school integration. It also included steps towards economic justice, like provisions for public housing, and committed the government to the integration of public facilities and the creation of a human rights commission. The treaty laid out a viable path to integration, but the Public Facilities Committee refused to enact it, arguing that the treaty should be put to the public in the form of a referendum. Richardson vehemently disagreed, calling on Cambridge’s black citizens to boycott the vote. However, white and black moderates voted and the amendment passed.
