Lucy Parsons Center
The Lucy Parsons Center is a renowned radical bookstore and community space founded in 1969. Named after the influential anarchist and labor organizer Lucy Parsons, the center operates as a collectively-run, volunteer-powered bookstore with a focus on anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, and anti-oppression literature. It serves as a hub for activists, scholars, and community members interested in social justice, hosting events, workshops, and discussions on various topics such as feminism, environmentalism, LGBTQ+ rights, and anti-racism. The center's unique collective and volunteer-based model fosters a sense of community and cooperation, making it a vital resource for marginalized voices and grassroots movements in Boston.
