Peace Be Unto You,

Thanks for highlighting one of Cambridge’s early Great Black minds ( https://www.cambridgeday.com/2022/05/06/much-of-cambridges-white-entrepr...) Today we need to keep and cultivate memories of these great black men and women, figures memories and contributions to history. The very sites,etc., that contributes to their march through history are being seriously neglected. That is their historical markers plaques, etc.,and grounds are also being seriously neglected. For years now, I have urge city historical figures at city hall of the necessity for needed repairs and renovations. I was also instrumental in and responsible for a sucessful CPA Funded Project to be awared to initiate the task, of modernizing early black historical sites,etc., but as of yet nothing has been done.

Look at the Harriet Tubman site on Story Street or the Clement G. Morgan site at Prospect and Hampshire Street, if you don’t believe me. The City of Cambridge and it’s Historical Commission has neglect the upkeep of great Black American historical entities. I’m not a native of Cambridge, but I have been here long enough to know that there is something nebulous at city hall, when it comes to spending money on the upkeep of local Black American historical sites. Racial Equity does not exist at city hall when it comes to addressing the upkeep of Black American Historical entities. The public funding goes towards supporting other vanity fair initiatives.

Yours In Peace
