Join us at the William Clapp House on Sunday, April 15, 2018 for:
Dorchester in the 1960s and 1970s: Interesting Times

Dorchester, the rest of Boston, and the entire country went through an unprecedented period of community activism in the 1960s and 1970s that led to some dramatic changes. Local community organizer Lew Finfer and local historian Jim Vrabel discuss some of the political, social, economic, and demographic forces that prompted that activism and how Dorchester developed as a community up to and since that time.
