2nd Annual “Solutions Series”
The Black Economic Council of Massachusetts (BECMA) in partnership with Roxbury Community College present the second annual “Solutions Series”
Join BECMA, in partnership with Roxbury Community College, for its second annual “Solutions Series” event during Black History Month. Following up on our successful February 2018 event, “Solutions to Address Race and Economic Inequality in the Commonwealth,” BECMA is proud to work with RCC to bring the community together for a conversation that seeks to highlight successful models that business and non-profit entities can replicate in addressing many of the systemic issues that impact communities of color.
Our event will follow a familiar format: several TedX style presentations, followed by a panel discussion with presenters and a short audience Q&A session. Presenters will be announced closer to the date of the discussion.
History of event
In December 2017, the Boston Globe ran a weeklong series describing the racial and economic climate in the city. The facts showed what many in communities of color already knew to be true: that Boston has not yet shrugged off its racist treatment and policies towards Black Americans.
As a response to the series, BECMA hosted an event — “Solutions to Address Race and Economic Inequality in the Commonwealth” — that saw over 400+ community members in attendance, and that included several interactive presentations from groups who are working to solve these age-old problems followed by a robust question and answer period with audience members.
