Mark Juneteenth with 'Poetry as Protest'

The Partnership to Renew the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial (the Museum of African American History, Friends of the Public Garden, the National Park Service, the Friends of the Public Garden, and the City of Boston) is excited to join the Royall House and Slave Quarters in presenting a special Juneteenth program.

Malcolm Tariq

Juneteenth 2020 coincides with a pandemic within a pandemic: the challenge of COVID-19 and America’s reckoning with its history of racism. Black Lives Matter.

Beyond the renewal of an iconic monument, we partners seek to educate, inform, and convene community conversations and special programs exploring history, race, and social justice. We hope these dialogues will lead to greater understanding — and ultimately social change which is long overdue.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration

Update: We are still confirming a date and location for this event for 2021. Please continue to check our website for updates.

Join us for the 80th Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration at the USS Constitution Museum. After the commemoration, there will be a wreath laying ceremony on the U.S.S. Cassin Young in Charlestown Navy Yard.

The treacherous Pearl Harbor attack initiated the entry of the United States into the greatest conflagration the world has ever seen. It is also served to unite all of America in an effort to defeat the forces of tyranny and preserve our freedoms. This program is dedicated in respectful remembrance and solemn gratitude to that which was lost, what was gained, and the careful attendance to what shall follow.

Franklin Park Master Plan Community Workshop #1

Join us for our first Community Workshop about the future of Franklin Park!

For over a century, Franklin Park has been a lively and beloved center of recreation, gathering, and discovery for the Boston community. Now, with newly allocated park funds, the City of Boston is planning ahead for the park’s next century!

Franklin Park

Over the next 18 months, the City of Boston is partnering with a team of landscape architects, planners, ecologists, and community engagement experts to create a master plan for an engaging and diverse Franklin Park. 

Our work will build on previous planning efforts and improvements by the City and its partners. We look forward to building on these successes and incorporating even more feedback. It’s your opportunity to help shape the future of the park and connections to the surrounding neighborhoods.

Franklin Park

Come to our Community Workshop on January 28, between 6 - 8 p.m. at the William J. Devine Golf Course Clubhouse at Franklin Park. Can’t make it? Share your thoughts on the Master Plan website, or sign up for project updates!
