Boston Arts Academy Production Features CFS Alum, Honors Congresswoman Pressley

CFS graduate of the class of 2015 Danny Rivera shined alongside his Boston Arts Academy classmates in their production of Memphis: The Musical earlier this year. The performance was staged at the Strand Theater in Dorchester and was followed by a talkback on racial justice language facilitated by Boston Arts Academy Foundation board member and celebrated actor Malik Yoba.

As written by the Dorchester Reporter, “The Friday night premiere was preceded by a VIP reception featuring Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, who received the BAA Champion Award.” Rivera was able to snap a picture with the Congresswoman in a shirt perfect for the occasion (see lead photo).
