Here's the Radio Boston rundown for June 1. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • WBUR's Deborah Becker recaps the protests Sunday night in Boston, which were peaceful throughout the day, but devolved into some violence at night.
  • We hear from Boston City Councilor Julia Mejia, who attended the protest and assisted young protesters trying to get home after the MBTA closed stations.
  • We hear from Rev. Willie Bodrick II, associate pastor at Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury, who was also there on Sunday night. He talks about how he views the path forward.
