Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 20. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We hear from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on police reform efforts, local schools working on reopening, and the city's continued fight against COVID-19.
  • We take listener calls on the dangers of, and relief from, urban heat in the Commonwealth, at a time when physical distancing makes it so hard to escape.
  • We speak with Michael Curry, former president of the Boston chapter of the NAACP, on the life of Rep. John Lewis, who Curry met with many times. He also draws parallels from Lewis's early work to the protest movement today.

This program aired on July 20, 2020.
