“Just a Kid from Cambridge”

When I saw my first one, I thought it was a sweatshirt that CRLS was handing out to the kids in one of its clubs. But then I started seeing more of them and not just on teenagers, but also on people of all ages. I am referring to the t-shirt/sweatshirt that proudly reads “Just a Kid from Cambridge.”

A Soulful City Girl

Meet Ali McGuirk

Before Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics was famous, she used to wait tables in New York City. Imagine the thrill of being served Spaghetti Bolognese by someone who would soon become an international rock star.

Although the game of fame has changed drastically over the decades, one thing remains the same; you never know what plethora of talent your waiter or barista may be dishing out when their shift is over.

Don’t Mess With Boston

“Free Speech Rally”

On Saturday, August 19, the last thing I had time to do was to go to the Boston Common to fight the ridiculous and never-ending battle against racism, hate, and white supremacy. I am sure that 40,000 of my co-conspirators felt the same way.

Mayor Simmons Proclaims August 26 Women’s Equality Day in Cambridge

Honors the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote

“Women won the right to vote almost one century ago, and it was a hard-fought victory that only came about due to generations of women activists who refused to accept the status quo of being second-class citizens,” said Mayor E. Denise Simmons. “Yet 97 years after that milestone, we must recognize that there is still so much work to be done in ensuring that women are given the same status, the same respect, and the same opportunities as men in this country.

Small Works Capture Big Messages

Postcards to Maud at Chandler Gallery through September 7

"Postcards to Maud" is an engaging exhibition and fundraiser for the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center on Sacramento Street. The premise of the show is that each artist created a 6" by 8" postcard for Maud Morgan, as if they were sending postcards to abstract expressionist and neighborhood resident Maud Morgan (1903-1999).

With Josh and Dennis

I know of two beehives in my neighborhood, which is good considering the buzz on bees is they are in danger of extinction.
