The Black Studies Reading Room is a monthly conversation on black lit, art, and ideas. Its purpose is to make more space for the creative and communal work of black study in and around Boston. Join us in October to discuss People Before Highways: Boston Activists, Urban Planners, and a New Movement for City Making. Linking archival research, ethnographic fieldwork, and oral history, Karilyn Crockett offers ground-level analysis of the social, political, and environmental significance of a local anti-highway protest and its lasting national implications
The BSRR is coordinated by Jovonna Jones, PhD candidate in African & African American Studies at Harvard University.
