Basic Black: After the Storm... Beverly Scott and the MBTA

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

February 13, 2015

Back to back storms in as little as two weeks dropped record amounts of snow on New England.  The capacity of the MBTA’s equipment was put to the test, but the system buckled under the weight of the weather.  In the face of widespread train delays and mounting criticism, MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott responded with a fiery press conference that’s not likely to be forgotten anytime soon.  The day after her press conference, Scott submitted her letter of resignation. We’ll take a look at her tenure and immediate task at hand to get the trains back to normal.

Later in the show, as the Bay State Banner celebrates 50 years of reporting the news of New England’s communities of color, we discuss the continuing evolution of journalists of color.
