Harvard Square is pleased to commemorate Black History Month by highlighting iconic men and women who made historic and significant contributions toward social and racial justice, voting rights, civil rights, women’s rights, education and race and gender equality here in Cambridge.

In partnership with Boston History Company and Cambridge Forum, we created videos highlighting these distinguished trailblazers who during their lifetime profoundly impacted the political/cultural/academic landscape of the Square.

We invite you to revisit these videos and learn more about their accomplishments.
