CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry, Roxbury Cultural Network and Mass Humanities are pleased to welcome long-time Roxbury resident, community organizer, and Civil Rights veteran Mimi Jones to facilitate a community reading series of works by influential women. This event will feature selections from Dorothy's Height's "Open Wide the Freedom Gates" in conjunction with Dr. Carter G. Woodson's "Mis-Education of the Negro." These moving readings--with audience participation--will be followed by a conversation about the authors' words, their place in history, and their relevance today. Reception from 6-7 PM, program from 7-9 PM. Event is free, and there will be an opportunity to meet Mass Humanities' new Executive Director, Brian Boyles. All are welcome--please join us!
