About the event
How can we center Black culture, Black experiences, Black joy, and Black ownership in the physical spaces across Boston’s neighborhoods? In our 3rd installment of the Black Boston Reimagined series, Boston While Black will be bringing together policymakers, real estate developers, cultural curators, and business owners to discuss the role that space plays in creating community, culture, and commerce. Join us as we discuss the local policies, inclusive planning processes, and access to capital we need to take up more of existing spaces and create our own.
