Alex prepares and delivers cultural competency presentations and workshops based on African-American history in Boston. The basis for the workshops are primary documents, such as letters and speeches, from black Bostonians like Dr. John Rock, Maria Stewart, David Walker, Prince Hall, and Phillis Wheatley.
