Robert J. Allison

My good friend Anouar Majid asked me to talk about Boston and New England at the Center for Global Humanities he has launched at the University of New England, in Portland, Maine. Great guests--students, folks from the Portland community, as well as Anouar and his wife Melissa.

"Save Our History" came to Boston, and we re-enacted the Boston Massacre.

On Friday, October 22, I stopped by the Fox 25 studio to talk about the 14th amendment with VB Goudie.

Here are some talks I have given at Old South, as well as our annual Boston Massacre Commemoration, with students from Boston Latin reading the original Massacre commemorative orations. They do a great job!
