Don't Mess with Cambridge

Change starts here...

Readers of these pages will remember that earlier this year, we reported that the Kendall Square restaurant Friendly Toast had on its menu a cocktail named “Strange Fruit.”  For those who don’t know, “Strange Fruit” is a song that was written in 1937 about the lynching of African-American men, which was common in the south at that time.  It became a signature of Billie Holiday, who sang mournfully about “Strange Fruit” hanging from the Poplar trees.

As If It Were Already There

New public art on the Greenway

I know, this isn't in Cambridge. Our stories are supposed to have a Cambridge connection. So why am I writing about a sculpture in Boston by an artist from Brookline that was made in Seattle? Well, I'm in Cambridge and this thing connected with me. I think it's one of the best things to happen in the area this year. It is my latest photographic obsession and I went to the dedication ceremony on Monday May 12, 2015.
