Add Passion and Stir, Advocacy, Race

“Love Always Wins”

I’d known and worked with Robert Lewis Jr (City Year, The Boston Foundation) for more than 30 years but this was the first time I’d heard the riveting story of his home  being firebombed by a boy he thought was his best friend during the racial strife that consumed Boston in the 1970’s.  Today he is one of the premier youth advocates in the country – and in this episode is in conversation with Boston chef Douglass Williams who overcame formidable odds and serious health challenges to become a successful restaurateur and No Kid Hungry supporter. His restaurant is Mida which means “he gives me.”
