What do a Mississippi-born blues/jazz musician, a three-term US Poet Laureate, a legendary basketball coach, and an award-winning NPR host have in common? Cambridge, Massachusetts!

Here at the Cambridge Historical Society, we believe that through their experiences, every person in our city knows something about Cambridge’s history, and their knowledge matters. We support people in sharing history with each other–and weaving their knowledge together–by offering them the floor, the mic, the platform. We believe that as we weave together our unique experiences, we are all creating the history of today.
