The Boston Globe Spotlight team’s latest series is a seven-part dive into what it has called its hardest question: is Boston’s reputation as a racist city still deserved? In it, they highlight a national survey, commissioned by the Globe, ranking Boston as the least-welcoming to people of color among eight major cities. According to the article, “in Boston, a city known as a liberal bastion, we have deluded ourselves into believing we’ve made more progress than we have … Boston’s complacency with the status quo hobbles the city’s future.”

Adam Reilly was joined by Boston Globe Columnist Adrian Walker, who was part of the team that put together this Spotlight series, Tanisha Sullivan, president of the NAACP’s Boston branch, and Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson, who recently challenged Mayor Marty Walsh for the top job.
