In their Words






"The Dorchester Block Party was a successful endeavor and we were able to build capacity amongst our neighbors. We had an intergenerational group of volunteers from teenagers to senior citizens. ... I believe in the words of Elizabeth Catlett 'Art is only important to the extent that it aids in the liberation of our people!'"
