*Please join the Labor Resource Center at UMASS Boston on
*
*Saturday, October 28, at 9:30 am, for the first James Green Memorial 
Lecture, featuring Patricia Reeve, to be followed by the kick-off of the 
walking tour.*
Using James Green's "A Working People's Heritage Trail" (2001) as a 
point of departure, historian Cristina Groeger (Harvard, PhD) created 
"The People's History Walking Tour of Boston" by identifying and 
researching important sites, writing their histories, and putting her 
tour on-line so friends of labor can now follow along using their 
smartphones.
The event will begin with the first James Green Memorial Lecture. 
Patricia Reeve, a professor of history at Suffolk University, will talk 
about the relationship between history and the labor movement, what it 
means to be an activist-public historian, and reflect on various paths 
forward for history and the labor movement. Professor Cristina Groeger 
will then discuss the making of the "Peoples' History Walking Tour of 
Boston."
