Thank you Bay State Banner for the great coverage of Discover Roxbury’s ArtROX Holiday Pop-Up Shop. It’s been a pleasure bringing creative hands and hearts together in a unique sales opportunity in the heart of Dudley Square! We still get passersby who ask “What is a pop up?”
And we say, we’re here today and gone tomorrow. Pop in before we’re gone!

The Bay State Banner’s Dec. 20, 2012 story “FCC must promote diversity in media ownership” is a powerful and important statement about the real-life impact these rulings have on our nation and more specifically on communities already suffering the disparate impacts of racial segregation, economic inequity and sexism.
Too many of the youth we work with have been taught by the media that beauty means light-skinned and unhealthily skinny, careers are limited and segregated by race, and that if you are a young man of color you are destined to be in front of a gun or behind bars.
In addition to challenging the mainstream media’s stranglehold on broadcasting, we need to empower and support alternative voices like the Bay State Banner, Press Pass TV, and the dozens of other amazing community makers that are telling the real stories on the ground. Thank you for writing this. Now we must act.
