A People’s Guide to Greater Boston offers a rich, vibrant alternative to the traditional city guide and tourist destinations. It reveals a history of protests and grassroots movements from below that have played an immense role in shaping the city’s history. Uncovering unique stories and places central to the lives of the people of Greater Boston over four centuries, this alternative tour guide takes readers to sites of oppression, resistance, struggle and transformation in Boston and outlying neighborhoods and municipalities—from Lawrence, Lowell, and Lynn to Concord and Plymouth. It highlights tales of the places and people involved in movements to abolish slavery, to end war and militarism, to achieve racial equity, gender justice, and sexual liberation, and to secure the workers’ rights. In doing so, this one-of-a-kind guide points the way to a radically democratic Boston, one that sparks social and environmental justice and inclusivity for all.
