Maureen McAleer will discuss the legacy of one of the most familiar names in Boston history, Crispus Attucks. Maureen is a graduate student in the ALM Program at Harvard University. Her thesis work, which will be completed in May, is focused on Attucks’s legacy in Boston in the twentieth century, and how activists, politicians, and the public have remembered, commemorated, and used his name over time. As an undergraduate, she majored in government at Dartmouth College, and then went on to teach high school history for nine years on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
