Community Book Launch & Holiday Party

Many of the people honored in the recently published book Portraits of 
Purpose: A Tribute to Leadership, co-authored by Don West and Kenneth J. 
Cooper, have deep roots in Roxbury.

  Those portrayed in P.O.P--through image, stories and historic 
narrative--are educators, lawyers, entrepreneurs, artists, community 
organizers, and spiritual leaders, who continued the pursuit of justice 
in these times.
