Spotlight: Race and Power in Boston
Friday, April 6th

In a highly publicized seven-part series published in late 2017, the Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team dug into one of the city’s most pervasive and troubling issues: the marginalization of the black community. The series exposed the insidious impact of racism on all levels of city life from housing to healthcare to education.    In their live event, "Spotlight: Race and Power in Boston," the Boston Literary District and GrubStreet invite the story’s writers to the stage where they will share their reporting, what didn’t make it into print, and engage with the audience on these pressing issues that strike at the core of the city’s identity.

This event takes place at the Boston Park Plaza in the Arlington Room (Mezzanine Level). Free and open to the public. No pre-registration necessary, though seating is limited.
