What matters in Southie

A week ago, Suzanne Lee spent a fascinating afternoon at Castle Island in South Boston. She was with a crowd of hundreds celebrating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

The event was organized by Medicine Wheel Productions, a terrific social service agency in Southie that uses art to promote inclusion. “You had people from all walks of life who came to Castle Island to commemorate the speech,” Lee said Sunday. “That is the part of South Boston that does not get highlighted. I was glad to be there for that, and to see how far we have come.”
