A history lesson

Roxbury: The other half of the story

Third Decade designed this poster for Discover Roxbury:

Roxbury's is one of the poorest areas of the city, yet the residents are surrounded by historical riches. Important sites include Highland Park (the location from which George Washington and the Continental Army began their journey to drive the British out of Boston), the First Church of Roxbury (one of the oldest churches in the Boston area), the former residences of William Lloyd Garrison and Malcolm X, the National Museum of Afro-American Artists, and a wealth of murals from the Black Arts Movement.

what are the four red-circled sites in Roxbury? I'd like to see the poster identify them, for the benefit of folks like me who may prefer to take our own stroll around the neighborhood instead of going on a guided tour.

They seem to be charging for their tours, so they might not want you bypassing them. In any case, the poster is just to show that there is something of interest in Roxbury, not to give details. Their web site lists locations of interest.

Did they commission this? It's a good concept, but I think as a graphic it definitely needs to be reworked (and spellchecked!)

I looked at it 3 or 4 times but don't see any misspellings. What is wrong?
