Columbia Point

A Conversation with Former Governor Dukakis & Doug Most | April 4

JFK Presidential Library

Join former Massachusetts Governor Dukakis and Doug Most for a conversation about  Boston's transportation through the years. This conversation will take place on Friday, April 4 from 6:30-8 pm at the JFK Presidential Library located at Columbia Point in Boston. 

This conversation will discuss the past, present, and future of urban transportation and Boston's MBTA. Former Governor Dukakis was known for riding the Green line, a distinction that has led to a proposal to rename South Station in his honor. Most's most recent book "The Race Underground: Boston, New York, and the Incredible Rivalry that Built America's First Subway" has received wide praise from The New York Times, The Economist, The Boston Globe, and many more. Join these transportation enthusiasts this Friday for a great conversation.

Workers and cranes will arrive on campus beginning at 8 a.m. to put the sculpture in place. The piece will join another monumental work by di Suvero - Huru, which stands nearby at the front of the Integrated Sciences Complex.
