Basic Black: Women's History Month and News of the Week

Basic Black

March 27, 2015

As Women’s History Month comes to a close we ask, what should be on the agenda for women’s issues as the presidential political campaign ramps up?  Later in the show, we look at why the tide has turned on the Boston’s bid for the 2024 Olympics.  And later, is there anything to be learned from Starbucks’ much criticized “Race Together” campaign?

February 15, 2013:

This week, with the State of the Union, President Barack Obama delivered his first major address after his second inaugural speech.  Most polls showed a favorable reception to the speech, which emphasized domestic issues including raising the minimum wage, voting reform, and a bigger push on passing immigration legislation.  But with a divided Congress and a country of competing constituencies, how much can be accompanied in a lame duck Obama presidency?
