Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


A People's History of the New Boston

In this first Neighborhood Matters event of 2015 we welcome author and local activist Jim Vrabel. Vrabel’s new book, A People’s History of the New Boston, draws from more than a hundred interviews with community leaders, politicians, businesspeople, and others. He profiles activists who worked for school desegregation, tenants’ rights, and better employment opportunities, a diverse group of citizens “who engaged in a period of activism that was unlike anything seen in this city for possibly 200 years.”
