Basic Black: Provocative, Timely, and No Scripts...

This week on Basic Black’s roundtable:

As Women’s History Month comes to a close we ask, what should be on the agenda          for women’s issues as the 2016 presidential political campaigns ramp 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’ widely criticized   “Race Together” campaign?
