Join Rosalyn Elder and More Than Words Youth for a reading of A Ballad for Massachusetts, a poem celebrating the accomplishments of 13 African American heroes in our history, from Elizabeth "MumBett" Freeman to Mel King. Elder is the author of "Exploring the Legacy: People and Places of Significance," detailing African American history across 742 sites in 141 towns in Massachusetts. All event attendees will receive a 20% off coupon to our bookstore and hot tea courtesy of More Than Words, a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers young adults who are in the foster care system, court-involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.
