Boston Breakthroughs -
400 Years of social and nonprofit innovations

From the town meeting and first public schools in America to neighborhood initiatives and community policing, the history of Boston is replete with examples of individuals and community organizations who have undertaken dramatic social change.

This beautifully-designed, 24-page book, published by the Boston History & Innovation Collaborative, recounts several dozen milestones ranging from civil rights, education, community development, housing, public health, art and culture, community service, and public safety.

We are pleased to provide an online sample of the book's editorial focus.
