Our Lead Story: “Boston’s Most Influential People of Color”  Earlier this year Boston Magazine published their 2023 ranking of the most influential Bostonians—in fact, nearly half of the people on the list are women. Ethnic Online went one step further and highlighted the People of Color on that list.  Did you know that 61 People of Color made the list of 150?  Remarkable growth for the city of Boston.  See who you know and be sure to congratulate them for being honored.

Under Trending: “New Haven Was Voted Top 50 Places to Visit in the WORLD.”  The New York Times displayed their annual Top 52 Places to visit in the world, and New Haven CT was selected at number 50 on that list. Diversity, dining, education and a walkable city was just some of the reasons.  Check out the trending section and learn more about New Haven and who else made the list.
