Join us on Tuesday, February 7th for a film screening of Jeffrey Robinson's documentary film, Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America. The film screening is sponsored by COAR (Communities Organizing Against Racism Concord Carlisle Boston) and will be followed by a brief talk by Joe Palumbo.
Joe Palumbo was born and raised in Concord on a farm along Battle Road. An educator for many years, he currently works as a historical interpreter and town guide and serves on the Board of Directors at The Robbins House. As our country develops a more complicated yet complete understanding of its past, places like Concord and Carlisle can be at the forefront of interpreting that history to the public. With new research and a greater understanding of past events, we open new windows and new opportunities to confront the past and tell fuller stories of all the people of our town. This is the focus of Joe's work.
