Reckonings Summer Institute

The Reckonings Project builds collaborations with community partners, faculty, and students to empower BIPOC communities and residents in the preservation, creation, and curation of their community histories. This Summer Institute promotes the methods and practical application of co-creation and co-curation among community organizations and college teachers across the Boston and New England region.
