Holding Ground: The Rebirth of Dudley Street (1996)

The film tells a story of hope and activism in the face of overwhelming obstacles. In the aftermath of decades of disinvestment by government, banks, and industry, the residents of an ethnically diverse Boston neighborhood joined together to rebuild their community. In this one-hour documentary, residents and other participants tell how the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI) turned a community around through grassroots organizing and planning.

Neighborhood Matters is a lunchtime series that celebrates the ways in which community groups have shaped the neighborhoods surrounding the Northeastern campus. This series is co-curated by the Northeastern Center for the Arts and the Archives and Special Collections at the Northeastern University Library.

The Archives and Special Collections houses and carefully curates a diverse and growing collection of historical records relating to Boston’s fight for social justice.  Our charge is to preserve the history of Boston’s social movements, including civil and political rights, immigrant rights, homelessness, and urban and environmental justice.

Lunch will be served.
