Host Anthony Brooks speaks with WBUR's Kimberly Atkins on Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton decision to consider running for President. Plus, why does blackface still shows up in modern culture, given its painful racial history? Is it ever acceptable, and are all instances of Blackface alike? Also, at the Patriots parade last week, the 1.5 million fans turned up for the celebration. But how much do these massive weekday parades cost, and as we keep winning, how can the city make celebration days safer and more sustainable for everyone?

This program aired on February 11, 2019.
