In "The changing face of citizenship," Boston Globe reporter Maria Sacchetti examines how an increasing number of black immigrants are committed to becoming American citizens, in fact it is a point of great pride once the goal is met.  In Massachusetts, as Saccetti reported, the number of new black citizens has doubled.  This week on Basic Black our conversation explores the political, economic, and cultural impacts of this growing trend.  We're joined by Evandro Carvalho, a native of Cape Verde and winner of the 5th Suffolk District State Rep primary race and Samuel Gebru, founder of the Ethiopian Global Initiative.
