Collin Knight

Collin Knight is a Roxbury Boston native who grew up right near famous Nubian Square. This was in the 1990s and at the time the area was not considered desirable. He always loved where he grew up and felt such a passion to support the community that supported him. Upon graduating from college, Collin walked right into a local Roxbury high school and asked for a job in the theater department, and ended up working for many years with the city’s at-risk youth as an actor/educator. He used my acting skills along with the program’s curriculum to teach life lessons to kids--empowering and preparing them to make their own decisions. In pursuit of other ways to support his community, Collin established Live Like A Local Tours. These tours help to promote local businesses and make more people aware of Roxbury’s vibrant community.
