The past has shaped Lowell’s present and its population, which includes dozens of cultures and ethnicities.

Boston 25 News reporter Stephanie Coueignoux talked to community members, historians and politicians to learn where the city is heading, and how everyone has a role to play in getting there. Watch her full report above.
