FRIDAY ON BASIC BLACK: Race, Recalls, and X-Men First Class

Our broadcast on Friday, July 8th at 7:30pm:  Mayor William Lantigua of Lawrence, MA is the subject of a recall effort which is gaining momentum. Many in the Latino community are deeply embarrassed by the entire situation, but should they be? From the White House to the State House, should communities of color hold their leaders to a different standard?

Also, according to some writers and reviewers, race is the x-factor in the new blockbuster film X-Men First Class, which is set in 1962 during the height of the civil rights movement.

Our panel:  Callie Crossley, host of The Callie Crossley Show, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Kim McLarin, assistant professor of writing, literature and publishing, Emerson College; Phillip Martin, senior investigative reporter, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Alejandra St. Guillen, executive director, Oiste; and Russell Contreras, reporter, Associated Press.
