Sunday, May 29th: “At the Ballot Box, In the Streets:
It’s Time to Build The Mother of All Movements.” with Mark Solomon

The Sanders electoral campaign, Black Lives Matter, the Movement for 15, the environmental upsurge, the defense of women’s rights —all portend the emergence of a progressive majority. A converging movement of all progressive forces to set the country and the world on an irreversible path towards peace, justice, equality and security for all. How to build and nurture that convergence is the central topic of this talk.

Mark Solomon, Professor Emeritus of History at Simmons College, Boston holds a B.A. degree in History from Wayne State University, an M.A. in History from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in The History of American Civilization from Harvard University. He has written scores of articles on African American history, race and racism, U.S. foreign policy, globalization, and war and peace issues that have appeared in both scholarly and popular journals. Prof. Solomon has also traveled and lectured in Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean and has been a visiting lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston College and Humboldt University in Berlin. He has written or edited five books including The Cry Was Unity: Communists and African Americans, 1917-1936 (University Press of Mississippi) and edited and wrote of an extended Afterword for Victor Grossman’s memoir, Crossing the River: A Memoir of the American Left, the Cold War and Life in East Germany (University of Massachusetts Press).

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working together with HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.
