BOOK TALK - A People's Guide to Greater Boston
A People's Guide to Greater Boston reveals the region’s richness and vibrancy in ways that are neglected by traditional area guidebooks and obscured by many tourist destinations. Uncovering stories and places central to people’s lives over centuries, it takes readers to sites of oppression, resistance, organizing, and transformation in Boston and outlying neighborhoods and municipalities. It highlights tales of the places and people involved in movements to abolish slavery; to end war and militarism; to achieve Native sovereignty, racial equity, gender justice, and sexual liberation; and to secure workers’ rights. In so doing, this one-of-a-kind guide points the way to a radically democratic Greater Boston, one that sparks social and environmental justice and inclusivity for all.
