Boston Urban Professional and Millennial Social Groups

Boston urban professionals have fixed the isolation problem. There used to be a time when a black person felt like they were the only black person in the room, but no longer. AfroCentricity is back in fashion and commerce thanks to creative Pop-Up Stores, the #BuyBlack movement and a general feeling nationally. Boston Blacks have formed a lot of groups, so you know that thing about isolation was a big one. Some groups limit participation by age. Boston area black college students attending Boston College, Harvard, Northeastern University, Boston University and others like them still feel isolated, they say. Oh well, they'll come around. On this page are some group names where you can hang out.
