In remembrance of Muhammad Ali, we speak with the Boston attorney who represented Ali over his conscientious objector status during the Vietnam War.

And, amid years of arguing about charter versus district-run public schools, one education advocate argues it's time for a Third Way, borrowing the best practices from each. But is it possible?

Finally, while Boston may have been envisioned as a shining city on a hill, it was actually built on the backs of enslaved Native Americans and Africans. A new book uncovers how slavery operated in New England during the 17th Century.
