Basic Black: Occupy The Hood and Redistricting

(Originally broadcast November 4, 2011)

This week on Basic Black we take a look at recent local headlines. We start with Occupy The Hood: what makes it different than the larger Occupy Movement?  Later in the show we turn our attention to the subject of redistricting and how it will change Massachusetts political landscape.

Our panel this week: Latoyia Edwards, anchor, New England Cable News; Phillip Martin, senior investigative reporter, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Kevin Peterson, director of the New Democracy Coalition; Jamarhl Crawford, editor The Blackstonian and organizer of Occupy The Hood; and Meghan Irons, reporter, The Boston Globe.
