Crystal Chandler. As Executive Director/Producer of The Crystal Lens, Crystal Chandler produced the "Dear Little Project," a video series and photo exhibition designed to flood Greater Boston's black community with positive messages to “empower the little black boys and girls in our lives and the ones that live inside of us.”
This popular project is now the basis for a workshop Crystal runs in schools and youth groups. She is the co-host of Boston Come Through, a live podcast that explores "all things black Boston," from business to music to social justice and events, and previously the host of The Somerville Line, which took on social justice issues in Boston and beyond.
Crystal is also an active member of the Board of Directors for Everyday Boston, which uses the power of storytelling to increase curiosity and connection across a divided city.
