BostonMurrell guides ABBG tours and publishes BlackBoston.com. He has never finished reading a novel, but he will reads African American history articles and research documents about Pan African culture from cover to cover. When he owned a computer store in Cambridge, MA, he developed a multi-media touch-screen public kiosk that was set up in public place to display the book “350 years of Black Boston History, ” by Robert Hayden, a project engineered by Kenny Granderson of Innercity Software.
BostonMurrell owns the registered trademarks [ “Black Boston Massachusetts, established 1638” and “Roxbury Trolley.” He created the “Back Bay to Black Boston Sprinter Tour” to entice people to come out of Back Bay hotel towers and explore the heart of African American culture in Boston, by way of historic monuments and landmarks located in Boston’s South End, Lower Roxbury, and Nubian Square. Bostonmurrell is a self-professed digitalPlumber who says everyday he feels like a tourist because he was not born and raised in Boston. He wants the website to become a marketplace for cultural interpreters who love giving tours and talks because they know a lot, but they also have full time jobs doing other things.
The biography that brought him up from North Carolina was covered in the historical engineering non-fiction book titled Black Software: From the Internet and Racial Justice, to the Afronet and Black Lives Matter released November 2019 by Oxford University Press.
You’ll find him in the Sunday Weekend Edition of the Boston Globe in a special section titled “HEROES.”
