        *“The New Age of Anxiety”*

        *with Dr. Matthew Dumont*

*Will you be with us at our Summer Speaker Series?
We usually take the Summer off. But not this Summer: *

*This Sunday, July 19 at 11 AM*, let’s celebrate our time in hiding, and 
CCB's One Hundredth Anniversary, with some wisdom from psychiatrist* Dr. 
Matt Dumont*. Matt is a long time favorite at CCB. His talks to us go 
back all the way into the ‘70s. Matt Dumont has been a regular speaker 
at CCB for more than 40 years. His sharp-edged commentaries on medical, 
economic, social and political unrealities have always provoked lively 
discussions. Here he takes a wide-screen overview of our current 
circumstances, their origin and prospects for the future.

Matt is the author, most recently, of/'Treating the Poor: A Personal 
Sojourn Through the Rise and Fall of Community Mental Health'. 
and analysis of his 16 years treating mental illness and confronting 
social problems in the city of Chelsea are contained in 'The Absurd 
Healer'. And his writings on health care were collected in Dr. 
Drummond's /'Spirited Guide to Health in a Dying Empire'/, winning 
recognition from the National Press Club.

We will also have with Matt, returning to CCB, the young Hip-Hopster 
She joins us from Joshua Tree, CA, one of the many beautiful places 
where she has drawn deep inspiration.

*Asliani *is a bilingual hip-hop artist whose words ring out with a 
message of transformation & empowerment. Originally from Boston, she’s 
lived many places and incorporates diverse aspects of her experience 
into her music. She connects deeply with listeners’ souls and hearts 
through her verses, giving honest & compassionate voice to many of the 
deeper processes in which we are collectively engaged.

Stay tuned for more upcoming gatherings:***July 21*, *Omar Suazo*, from 
Honduras, introduces us to Garifona culture and gives us a rundown, from 
an Afro-Caribean perspective, on the fight against Covid 19 on the 
Atlantic Coast. Also joining us: Sendi Suazo (Omar’s wife), and Alba 
Boden.***July 26: Rev. Allan McClendon*, from the First Baptist Church 
in Jamaica Plain, is the Hospitality Minister there, which means that a 
deep part of his ministry is about being chef to the community, 
elegantly feeding lots of people. He also has an amazing story to tell. 
In this instance, Allan is sharing about his recent trip to Cuba. August 
16: Suren Moodlier and others, speaking on their new book”A People’s 
Guide to Greater Boston”, a fascinating history of activist Boston over 
the ages. Suren is part of the treasure trove of activist talent that 
have recently taken residence in our building, the folks from Encuentro 
Cinco. *Aug. 23: Rev. Bill Alberts*, our minister between 1979 and 1990, 
and today, at a ripe young age, is still a prolific author of firebrand 
articles in *Counterpunch
