The State of the Black Bay State
Deval Patrick
We’re looking at Governor Deval Patrick’s career through the lens of blacks in the Bay State. Gov. Patrick has successfully represented black interests on Beacon Hill without compromising his broad support across the state, a new report finds. From executive orders, to legislative initiatives, to appointing hundreds of blacks to high positions, the report says Patrick successfully governs by using a universal approach to frame black interests as interests that matter to all citizens. We’ll look at the specific initiatives that support this study. We’ll also ask how State House decisions like casinos, MBTA fare hikes, and sevice cuts square with this sunny scenario.

GUESTS:
  Ravi Perry, assistant professor of political science at Clark University, author of the report: Governor Deval Patrick and the Representation of Black Interests in Massachusetts
  Kelly Bates, executive director of the Access Strategies Fund
