Q is for (Latin) Quarter
I’m definitely cheating a bit to get a Q in here. After all, I could have posted Latin Quarter for L instead of a couple of poets. And I could’ve posted the poets for P instead of Francis Parkman. And I could’ve posted Francis Parkman for F instead of the Footlight Club. And I could’ve posted the Footlight Club as C for community theater or just T for theater. And so on.
But I’m glad I’m able to include this in the A to Z Challenge as Jamaica Plain is home to Latin American immigrants many of them from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic as well as other parts of Central and South America. In fact, the teen leaders of the Hyde Square Task Force are working on a campaign to have the area around Hyde Square and Jackson Square officially designated as Boston’s Latin Quarter
