This place-based anti-gentrification project takes place in the heart of Cambridgeport — a collaboration with St. Augustine’s African Orthodox Church.  We are protecting St. Augustine’s from gentrification across many dimensions, including addressing decades of deferred maintenance and historically preserving the church’s exterior. In addition, we are securing and updating the church’s legal documents to ensure St. Augustine’s is protected as a Black community space for the future.  We also unearth, archive, and interpret the African-Caribbean legacy of Black Cambridgeport, anchored by St. Augustine’s, and share these historical discoveries with the public.
