“Solutions at Work” NEEDS YOU!

The 26-year-old nonprofit, Solutions at Work, is on the verge of extinction. The only things that can save it are: quick thinking on the part of the city, the will of the people, and/or a big fat check.

Solutions at Work was created in 1989 by a group of homeless individuals who knew exactly what social services were needed, and missing, in order to help people step out of the vicious cycle of poverty and homelessness.

Say it Loud...

I'm Black and I'm Proud

Nassir "NAS" Jones Prestigious Award Honoree at Harvard

Ever since James Brown introduced this epic anthem in 1968, I’ve struggled with this phrase. Don’t get me wrong, the concept is worth embracing. It’s just the word “proud” that gives me pause. But tonight I felt proud. Not in an ostentatious way. I was proud in a humbling 1968 celebratory way. Tonight, in Cambridge, history was made…again.

Hands Cambridge

Cambridge hands make beautiful music...

On July 30 of this year, my colleague Reba-Glory Cabral wrote about Hands Cambridge, an event involving a piano, a piano teacher, and skilled and unskilled hands.  

The Hands Movement began in 2014 when founder Alyssa O'Toole set up a piano in Boston and asked 50 people to play a part of a song.  Some of the participants knew how to play, but many didn't. However, Ms. O'Toole's patient coaching opened the door for even the most hesitant would-be pianist.
