Join us at the Newsfeed Café for a pop-up art show of artists from the Boston Black Male Artist Collective. Artists will be in attendance and will be discussing the impact of arts and culture on the community. The art show is presented in conjunction with KEVIN POWELL’s lecture, “Looking for Martin―Dr. King, Community, Civil Rights, Social Media, and the New Activism,” part of the Boston Public Library’s Lowell Lecture Series.
The show is co-sponsored with MATT PARKER, a creative writer, community organizer, and poet/spoken word artist.
Artist talks begin at 7:30 PM. Wine and beer available for purchase with valid ID.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
