BGCD Puts on Living Museum Event for Black History Month

DORCHESTER, MA — As part of BGCD’s February vacation and this month’s “Welcome Wednesday”, members of our Walter Denney Youth Center put on a special Living Library event to honor Black History Month. We had nine members chose a figure in history meaningful to them and represent with costumes and speeches.

Some of those who were represented were Kamilah Harris, NASA Pioneers from Hidden Figures, Maya Angelo, Martin Luther King Jr., Barack O’Bama and more.

The event was attended by over 50 guests who included parents, community members and staff, and also included an amazing singing performance by BGCD member Noa.

A special thanks to Rich Fullam of CMJ Management who provided the pizza and to all of those who helped put together this special evening.
