Celebrating Boston Pride 50 Years After Stonewall
Fifty years ago this month, a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in New York City — then one of the few bars in the city that would serve LGBT patrons — erupted into a violent, days-long uprising, which has come to be seen as the high profile start of the national gay liberation movement. On the first anniversary of Stonewall, thousands marched through Greenwich Village to commemorate the incident and to kick off a decades-long fight for safety, equality and acceptance. Five decades later, Jim Braude speaks with a panel of local advocates to see what has changed and what progress is still needed: Dale Mitchell, who was at the original Stonewall riots and is the 2019 Boston Pride Parade Grand Marshal this weekend; restaurateur and chef Tiffani Faison; and artist Izzy Berdan, who’s on the board of the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus.

Commemorating D-Day
This week, leaders from around the world have been gathering in France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the massive invasion of Normandy during World War II. With fewer and fewer D-Day veterans left to share their first-hand accounts of June 6th, 1944, there's an urgency to capture their stories. ‘Greater Boston’ looked back at a 2014 profile by WGBH's Elizabeth Ross of one local veteran who served and dedicated the rest of his life, until his death in 2015, to educating people on what happened that day.

Will The New Revelations About the Census Citizenship Question Matter?
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in April about the Trump administration’s plan to include a citizenship question on the census — but significant information surfaced this past week indicating the federal government did so for political reasons. The daughter of a now-deceased Republican leader in district-map drawing discovered a hard drive of his past work, which contained evidence that the citizenship question was specifically crafted to give an electoral benefit to whites and Republicans. Is the citizenship question just a routine inquiry, as the administration has claimed, or racist? And how much will this new information matter, given the timing?

Jim Braude was joined by Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, the executive director of the Lawyers' For Civil Rights, and Peter Skerry, a political science professor at Boston College.
