The access road from Mead Street out to South Orange Avenue will now be called “Boz Way” in honor of Lee Boswell May who died last year. The dedication was celebrated on Saturday, March 6th by a socially distanced group of locals who worked with and were friends with Lee.
According to Village President Sheen Collum: "A lifelong resident of South Orange, Boz was a wild jazz/blues enthusiast (wife of the prolific bassist Earl May) and you could find her at all of our live music performances. But more importantly, she was a civil rights activist and historian of our community’s past. A long-term trustee of the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race, Boz lived and breathed MLK’s vision of a “Beloved Community” - a town rooted in justice, equal opportunity, and love for each other.
So when you take a stroll along this route - walking, running, biking, going to the pool or tennis courts- know and reflect on the Giant for whom we honor and remember."
