At Home Boston Exhibit at Downtown Crossing: Real Stories of the Pandemic and Protests

As the lockdown began in March, the BBF, in collaboration with the Boston Globe, launched a community writing initiative called At Home Boston to collect real stories from residents across the city. This moving exhibit features ten of our most celebrated stories from over 350 collected for the At Home project. Taking on themes from racial justice to reconnection, the stories weave together slices of life from frontline workers, teachers, friends, grandparents, and even classroom pets during these unprecedented times. From October 3–25, enjoy this free outdoor exhibit that includes a piece by well-known local author and Emerson professor Jabari Asim.
