Here's the Radio Boston rundown for June 22. Chris Citorik is our host.

  • Restaurants can now reopen for indoor dining. We speak with two restaurant owners on balancing reopening and keeping staff and customers safe from coronavirus.
  • In our first installment of "Writers On Writers," author Jabari Asim talks with us about some of his favorite children's books that tell the story of race in America.
  • This Father's Day was different: with a pandemic and an ongoing national conversation — and protests — about racism in America. For Black fathers, having conversations about race with their children is a matter of education and, often, of survival. We reflect on Black fatherhood with two Black fathers.

This program aired on June 22, 2020.
