Shirley-Eustis Place Landmark Designation

Join Mayor Kim Janey and The Boston Landmarks Commission Friday, August 20, at 1:30 p.m. to honor the too often untold, unrecorded, and unrecognized history of enslaved people in Boston and on the Shirley-Eustis Place grounds.

Mayor Kim Janey, the Boston Landmarks Commission commemorates the designation of Shirley-Eustis Place in Roxbury as a historical landmark. With the Shirley-Eustis Houses well-known historical significance of former Governors Shirley and Eustis comes a hidden history that is often untold, unrecorded, and unrecognized. Ongoing research and oral history in Roxbury suggests that the lands were built, kept, and managed by enslaved people. Mayor Janey’s support and commemoration of the designation expands the history that is often centered in Boston.

Arrested mobility: Limits on Black mobility in the U.S.

Join our conversation about how transportation policies, plans, and projects systematically limit the mobility of Black residents. We have an event on June 1, and another on June 3. Registration links are below.

In early June, we are hosting Charles T. Brown as a special edition of the T-Talk series hosted by the Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition, Powerful Pathways, and the Urban Outdoors Association.

This talk will highlight the adverse social, political, economic, and health impacts of racial disparities in transportation and mobility. We will explore the ways in which our research, planning, policy, and street design can and must be reimagined. Doing so will help us achieve greater mobility, health, and quality of life for Black Bostonians. Charles Brown will be joined by Elijah Evans of Bikes Not Bombs and Courtney Jacobovits, resident of Jamaica Plain, for a discussion after his presentation.

Join either day:
About the T-Talks:

These talks are focused on those who live in the Mattapan, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Hyde Park areas as well as those who identify as Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour (BIPOC) although all are invited. The goal of the T-Talks is to help more people understand the importance of transportation, street changes, and the connection to their own lives.
