My name is Devon Keeley. I am currently a Senior at Lesley University studying English Literature, Art Therapy, and Gender Studies. My passion lies in transgender rights and local activism, so I plan to cover stories about those issues while interning with NeighborMedia.

 

Stories by Devon Keeley

CAMBRIDGE – In light of Black History Month, Lesley University BFA students and alumni came together on Thursday evening for the opening reception of a black artist showcase.
The exhibition was a revisit of the February 2016 showcase, Black History Matters 365 created and organized by Percy Fortini-Wright, which sought to “reflect on black history, empowerment and pride.”

CAMBRIDGE – The idea of female genital mutilation (FGM) may seem like a foreign concept to many Cambridge residents, however on Feb. 12 the screening of the 30-minute documentary, ‘A Pinch of Skin’ and the discussion that followed sought to spread awareness about FGM and begin a conversation about a topic that is often silenced.

While it might not get as much foot traffic as the neighboring Harvard Square, Porter Square is home to a variety of shops and restaurants and offers a great deal of promise for future revenue.

Now a part of Lesley University, University Hall at 1815 Massachusetts Ave., was once a Sears from 1985 to 1991 but now houses a variety of shops and dining opportunities. A Work Out World inhabited the lower level of the building until May 2014, and on Jan. 31 of this year Planet Fitness filled the vacant 15,000-foot-space.
