Panel Discussion: Community Conversations

with Chinese Historical Society of New England, Institute for Human Centered Design, and Women's Foundation of Boston

To demonstrate the variety and richness of “essential knowledge” and the ways it can be defined, the cabinet in “Required Reading: Reimagining a Colonial Library” is filled with titles selected by ten community partners. Join three of our partners for a panel discussion moderated by Cara Solomon, founder of Everyday Boston, for a discussion centered around the question: “What knowledge is necessary for people of different communities to work together?”
