Voices from the Brighton Allston Congregational Church Story Circle

Posted: February 13, 2013 by Donna Bivens in Uncategorized

On a frigid night in February, twenty five people came out to be a part of our first official story circle at the Brighton Allston Congregational Church–a BBDP partner organization. It was a wonderful evening of listening, learning and building on the work of the first phase of the project.

Below are some of the voices from our first pilot story circle that made the evening so special. Your thoughts and stories in response are welcome and deeply appreciated.

As I saw the conflict, it was a cultural conflict and it was a struggle for resources—educational resources in the city. Armando Martinez  

I began to realize that there are structures for emotion—it’s not totally chaotic. Cassie Quinlan  

The thing I noticed about Boston was that from what I could see on the Boston University campus, it was a really white campus. It was  a really white city.  Ava Chan


I realized at one point that the Domino affect still runs through all of us.  Allentza Michel 

We also heard how bad it was in Boston..In Kentucky, we heard about how bad it was up here  – Trina Jackson .

 I wanted to find out a little bit more about the background that you feel as a newcomer that you didn’t experience directly. Naama  Goldstein and 7 yr old son
