How would you want Boston to memorialize Elma Lewis’ legacy?
|… I grew up with Ms. Lewis’ influence. I would say upgrade the current Museum of [the National Center of Afro] American Artists and bring back the art of black dance.
|Ms. Lewis is a legend. A section of [Franklin] Park should be dedicated to her because she started Playhouse in the Park. She was especially there for the youth.

|A statue in her image with a plaque with name and history [should be] put in Franklin Park, [where] Playhouse in the Park [is held].
|Since I was a child, I wondered why they named streets the names they are. When someone looks up and sees Elma Lewis’ name, they’ll get a great story.
