Basic Black: Next Generation Politics and Press

November 7, 2015

This week on Basic Black we look at the seismic shift in the Boston City Council as two challengers ousted the city’s longest serving councilors. One of the winners was Councilor-Elect Andrea Joy Campbell who will represent District 4, having beaten Charles Yancey, who held the seat for 32 years. Also, we discuss the 50th anniversary of the Bay State Banner and the relevance of ethnic newspapers today.
