The Boston Children’s Museum is hosting “Boston Black.” The exhibit allows visitors to explore several Boston neighborhoods and talk about race, ethnicity, community, identity, and inclusivity.
Jonathon Rowe ’18, president of the BSU, suggests documentaries such as “13th,” “Selma,” “Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution,” “Eyes on the Prize Series on PBS,” “Black Power Mix Tape,” “What Happened to Nina Simone?,” “Malcolm X,” “Hidden Figures,” and “Twelve Years A Slave.” These can be found on Netflix, in theaters, or through the Cardinal Cushing Library‘s Kanopy service.
Whether on or off campus, in campus dialogues or with your friends, keep the conversation alive–today more than ever. For more information or ideas of ways to get involved, contact Jonathon Rowe of the BSU or Jeffrey Smith, Director of Diversity and Inclusion/Multicultural Programs.
