      WGBH presents BostonTalks: Inside Jamaica Plain

      Boston is made up of neighborhoods defined by unique personalities. Jamaica Plain is no exception! Explore the diverse and action-driven community of Jamaica Plain through the eyes of the people who help define it.

      Hear from:
      Karilyn Crockett 

      Urban Historian and Author of People Before Highways

      Hear the story of how residents of Jamaica Plain banded together to prevent a superhighway from cutting through their community.

      Carol Downs

      For more than 25 years, Carol has been part of the team behind the artsy, vibrant and delicious local eatery Bella Luna & The Milky Way. Their mission? To be a gathering place that creates community through food, beverages, art and music in an effort to build a better Boston.

      Paloma Valenzuela 

      Director and Writer for The Pineapple Diaries

      Paloma grew up watching sitcoms and living in Jamaica Plain but noticed something—there were few Latina characters. So she created The Pineapple Diaries, a comedic web series featuring three women in their late 20s living in JP.

      BostonTalks is WGBH’s smarter happy hour. It’s smarter because we feature three short talks, and it’s happy hour because the entire event takes place in a bar-like setting with lots of casual conversation. BostonTalks Happy Hour is a networking-style event with limited seating.

You must be at least 21 with a valid ID to attend this event. Beer, wine and hard cider are available for purchase. 

      Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
