STATE OF BLACKS
Paul, Jemendari & Tony
Friends & peers like the three professors above; V. Paul Deare, Jemadari Kamara and Tony VanderMeer; gathered to summarize the State of Black Boston by comparing the late 1960's when the Urban League last presented in Boston to this event in 2011.  Their purpose was to synthesize what’s working and what’s missing in conversations, who’s talking and why, who’s in the equitability room in the areas of health, housing & economic development, criminal justice, K-12 education, higher education, civic engagement, arts & culture and media.  Where the fragmentation is and how they can work together to fix what’s not working. This is what we learned . . . .
