Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 23. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We get an update on the police reform bill currently in front of the Massachusetts House of Representatives with Rep. Carlos González, chair of the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus.
  • What's it like to take over an elite boarding high school, during important conversations on race and privilege and a global pandemic? That's the task ahead for Dr. Raynard Kington, the new head-of-school at Phillips Academy in Andover, serving as the school's first Black leader and first openly gay leader.
  • A day at the beach has gotten a lot more complicated this year. Beaches are enforcing social distancing rules, limiting parking, and some are even restricting access for non-residents. We break down what's behind the rules, and how communities should balance access with public safety.

This program aired on July 23, 2020.
