Roxbury is the geographic heart of Boston and is at the intersection of Boston’s culture, history and identity. In the 1940s and 50s African Americans began to migrate from the south, making Roxbury a center of Black culture. Today Roxbury is home to a diverse community which includes African American, Hispanic, and Asian families.  With EforAll, all local area residents with a dream to start their own business will receive the tools, support and network they need to be successful.
