Neighborhood Matters: Native Boston
Special Guests:
Nicholas Brown, Associate Teaching Professor Northeastern School of Architecture
 J. Cedric Woods, Ph.D, Director Institute for New England Native American Studies UMass Boston

Native Boston will feature the screening of an excerpt of “Mashpee Nine: The Beat Goes On” a film held in the Archives and Special Collections at Northeastern. This film tells the story of injustice, outrage, activism, and vindication that emboldened cultural pride and integrity for the Wampanoag, a rural Native American community in Mashpee, Massachusetts nearly 40 years ago.

The short screening will be followed by a conversation with J. Cedric Woods, Director of the Institute for New England Native American Studies, UMass Boston facilitated by CAMD Architecture professor Nicholas Brown, creator of the web-based project A People’s Guide to Firsting and Lasting in Boston.  Lunch from Roxbury’s Haley House will be served.

Neighborhood Matters is a series that celebrates the ways in which community groups have shaped the neighborhoods surrounding the Northeastern campus. This series is co-curated by the Northeastern Center for the Arts and the Archives and Special Collections at the Northeastern University Library. See More At: Neighborhood Matters
