with Gary Kaplan, narrated by Greg Cunningham
A history maker in Boston’s civic and social landscape
It’s hard to believe one man has had such an influence on Boston’s civic and social landscape. A leader of reform in Boston politics and civic leadership since his arrival from New York in 1955, Hubie Jones has been involved in the creation of more than 30 community organizations, spearheaded the laws that guarantee educational rights for English language learners and special education students, led a major study of the Boston Public Schools, organized a citywide strike of Black workers, and founded the Boston Children’s Chorus—to cull only a few of his achievements.
This month, the JFYNetWorks podcast continues our focus on history with a conversation between Hubie Jones and JFY’s Executive Director Gary Kaplan. In this podcast, Hubie recounts some of the history he not only witnessed but played an active role in creating.
