  1. This is an outstanding article about an outstanding leader in the Boston-area community. Carmen is an inspiration. I’m glad her good works are being highlighted.

  2. I am so proud to know Carmen Fields, classmate and friend. This article reminds me of the greatness that was in our community when Carmen and I were in plays together, in choir together, double dating at senior prom….such a beautiful history that Carmen articulates so well. My grandmother, Rosa Davis Skinner, was featured in Carmen’s GOING BACK TO T-TOWN.

  3. Carmen, this is a wonderful article. You are and always have been a bright light, gracious, and warm. Congratulations on this well-deserved acknowledgment of your work.
