Our Riverside is a community history and design program at the Cambridge Community Center.


In the CCC’s files are boxes of documents, photographs, letters and newspaper clippings that tell the story of this nearly 100 year old institution and the primarily black community in Cambridge that it serves.  And in the CCC’s community are generations of families that have called the space a second home.

At Our Riverside, we uncover and share the stories of the CCC and the Riverside neighborhood, to keep these stories in our community, to develop a better understanding of our past, and to imagine a greater future together.
