Disunited States of America

Boston Calling
"I saw my brother in these boys. I saw my son in these boys.” First, we talk to an activist speaking out against violence towards blacks in America. Then, we hear how the story of one police shooting in San Francisco has been turned into a stage play. Next, we learn why the Bahamas issued a travel advisory to the US. Also, we hear about the perils of "walking while black" in New York City. Plus, a daughter figures out how to talk to her father about race for the first time. We end the show with “American Tune,’’ a posthumous release by the New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint.
