Basic Black: The State of the City, The State of the State, and The State of the Union

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics


(Originally broadcast on January 27, 2012)


This week on Basic Black: a discussion on the future of our communities from Boston to Washington, DC. We'll review the State of the City, the State of the State, and the State of the Union. For Boston, much of our discussion will center on the Mayor's proposals for school assignments; in Massachusetts, the organization of community colleges and the "three-strikes" law are drawing strong reaction; and as we look at how the State of the Union was received, we'll address recent events which seem to illustrate a shocking level of diminished respect for the Oval Office (and its current occupant).
