Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 6. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The Supreme Court has extended its term into July for the first time since 1996 — and the rulings keep coming. We speak with WBUR's Kimberly Atkins about two rulings on Monday, and what else she is watching this week.
  • We speak with Ibram X. Kendi, a historian and author of "How To Be An Antiracist," as Boston and the country enter a third month of protests over racism and police brutality. Kendi will be the new director and founder of the new Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University.
  • Unless you live in Boston or Somerville, Phase 3 of the Commonwealth's re-opening begins Monday. What does that mean in terms of what can re-open, and what that might mean for the potential spread of COVID-19?

This program aired on July 6, 2020.
