About the Event

Community Conversations: Housing and Racism in Boston: A History (w/ Byron Rushing) 

Join us for the first edition of the 4th annual Community Conversations series! This event will be held in-person and virtually.

This year's theme is focused on how housing has contributed to racial inequity, especially in Boston. We will examine various aspects of this topic (public housing, affordable housing, new models of housing) - and Byron will start the series by offering a historical perspective.  Join UUUM in-person or via Zoom on Tuesday, November 14th as they welcome historian Byron Rushing to discuss the history of housing and racism in Boston.  There is a virtual option to watch the event...please RSVP to: development@uuum.org.

Questions or RSVP to Participate:

If you have any questions about the event, or if you would like to join us in the crowd at the Urban Ministry, email: development@uuum.org.

About the Speaker

Historian Byron Rushing, who served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives for over-thirty-years, was also the president of the Museum of African-American History in Boston.

Through his life Rushing has been a champion for justice, and will speak about the history of racism in the Boston-area, and how that has affected housing for the city’s BIPOC residents—both in the past and in current day Boston.
