New sculptures in Everett Square
Newspapers"In creating the artwork, I spent a lot of time engaging in the oral history project, I spent a lot of time talking to neighbors and politicians, and I also spent a lot of time looking at historical collections," the artist says. "Dorchester has a really rich legacy of activism."
The sculpture has quotes from three different Dorchester natives and civic leaders:
A glorious democracy depends upon the education of its people. - Massachusetts Governor Edward Everett, whom the square is named after.
For Every Right with All Thy Might - William Monroe Trotter, African-American activist and the founder of The Guardian
It was not possible in such times for a woman to be silent. -- Lucy Stone, women's rights activist
