How Culture and Creativity Build Power in Communities of Color

March 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Amid Boston’s development boom, communities of color are grappling with maintaining and amplifying their identity. Questions of who belongs to places — and to whom places belong — will determine the future of the city. Facing rapid change, community leaders are leveraging culture and creativity as strategies for placekeeping, and for sharing belonging, wellness, and joy.

Join the Boston University Initiative on Cities, the BU Arts Initiative, and the BU City Planning & Urban Affairs Program for a discussion with Boston’s community leaders to explore the impact that culture and creativity make in places:

Tania Fenandes Anderson, Boston City Councilor, District 7; former Executive Director, Bowdoin Geneva Main Streets

Michael Monestime, Business Strategy and Development, Morningside Real Estate Group, Founding partner of Starlight Square.

Anita Morson-Matra, Creative Entrepreneur and Founder, Baldwin in the Park & Nubian Nights
