Historian Robert Allison charts Boston’s remarkable transformation from 1933 to 2018. Come learn about the big events that changed our city forever – the demolition of the West End; school desegregation and the busing crisis; the infamous Big Dig; and the rise of the Seaport District. What’s been gained over nine decades? What have we lost? What’s next on the horizon? Be a part of this conversation that explores past, present and future. Robert J. Allison is a professor of history at Suffolk University and the author of many books including A Short History of Boston.
