VIDEO: Herb Gleason on leadership and community health

Longtime community leader and lawyer Herb Gleason participated in one of NPi’s earliest community dialogues in December 2008 alongside Bay State Banner founder, Mel Miller, and Codman Square Health Center founder, Bill Walczak. This dialogue focused on Boston’s unique social justice history, paying particular attention to the community health center movement as well as race and education (and the issue of busing) in the 60s and 70s.

In this video, Herb Gleason shares lessons on leadership and community organizing, discusses his time working with community activist Mel King while at United South End Settlements, and tells the story of the founding of one of Boston’s first community health centers (one of the most energizing decisions he says he’s ever been involved with).
