Mayor Marty Walsh is assembling a task force to combat racism in Boston, which he has declared a public health crisis in the city.

The mayor's move comes amid widespread demonstrations calling for racial equity and police reform, and an ongoing pandemic that has hit Black and brown communities the hardest.

One member of the task force on racism is former state legislator Marie St. Fleur. She joined WBUR's Morning Edition to discuss.
