The Case for Black With a Capital B


Basic Black: Provocative, Timely, and No Scripts...Local Voices on National Flashpoints

Friday - October 9, 2015 at 7:30pm | WGBH 2/HD | basicblack.org

This week on Basic Black's roundtable:

Our conversation covers three topics:

- Hispanic Heritage Month - as with all the “heritage” months, we ask, does this month have the same relevance/significance as it does when it was conceived and if so, does it need to change for contemporary times?
- The Latino Vote 2016 - as the presidential campaign for 2016 continues momentum, are the candidates and parties engaging and mobilizing the Latino vote?
- How do we as a country move toward solving the persistent challenge of immigration reform?

- Marcela Garcia, Contributor to the Op-Ed and Editorial Page, The Boston Globe
