Documentary on the History of Racism in Boston

January 17 from 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm

As a new year begins, many of us are making resolutions, not the least of which include working toward racial healing, justice, and reconciliation in our communities. That said, we can’t know how to nurture transformation more effectively until we better understand the history that shapes our racial climate today.
You can learn more about Boston’s racial history by watching the award-winning documentary, A Reckoning in Boston, on PBS on January 17th, 2022 at 10 pm.
This documentary was birthed when a White film maker began documenting the journey of low-income, adult students of color, only to find that, through this experience, he was getting his own education. A collaboration was then formed between the filmmaker and two students of color to co-produce a film exploring the history of racism in Boston.
