Environmental Justice and the Boston Harbor Islands

March 29, 2023 at 6:00PM

Spec

Over the course of their existence, the Boston Harbor Islands have served a variety of purposes for inhabitants of the Greater Boston area. Some communities have approached their relationship with the islands through the lens of reciprocity and communal use, while other communities have viewed the islands as places of boundless resources and spaces apart from the mainland. This presentation will explore the many historic uses of the Boston Harbor Islands and examine the role of environmental justice throughout their existence.
