MATTAPAN, THE POWER OF COMMUNITY

Mattapan is a neighborhood in the south of Boston with a population of 36,480 with a very ethnically and culturally diverse black/African American community (74%). The richness of that diversity is sometimes clouded by the risks of segregation, in contradiction with Boston´s values of inclusiveness and integration. That lack of opportunities has turned the neighborhood into an older community with a stigma of crime and unsafety. However, community organizations fight to change it and transform the neighborhood.
