Through his life he has been a champion for justice, and will speak about the history of racism in the Boston-area, and how that has affected housing for the city’s BIPOC residents—both in the past and in current day Boston.
Byron served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives for over-thirty-years, and was also the president of the Museum of African-American History in Boston.
