Program Description

First segment: Roxbury has been viewed as a community with insurmountable hardships — as poor people who lived there only because they had to. This community has now come of age, facing some of the same decisions as suburbs: choosing between the need for more apartments or new homes for those who can afford them. Second segment: Black Republicans are fast increasing, raising the brows of many in the community. Why are their numbers growing in the current political climate, and can the Democratic ticket no longer take the black constituency for granted?
