Opening Reception: 10/3, 5:30-7pm
Get nourished! Head out to Dudley Square, grab a tasty treat and check out the current exhibit celebrating the 45th anniversary of late 60’s/early 70’s Chicago group, African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists (AFRICOBRA). The collection of 40 year-old prints are vibrant images of the black community using art to empower themselves. The work’s graphic nature, use of color and perspective seem familiar, as it’s an aesthetic still prevalent today. The show mirrors a Haley House motto: Mutual Respect For All.
This Cafe is one piece of the Haley House organization’s community building efforts.
Haley House has been dispensing dignity since 1966 by helping Boston’s homeless regain control of their lives. Their soup kitchen provides warm, nutritious food to the homeless on a daily basis. In the South End, they own and run 100+ housing units for the former homeless and low income families. They provide programs to help people develop new skills, find work and even help them navigate government programs/paperwork clusterfucks.
