Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • John Lewis is the first Black lawmaker to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda. We reflect with former Boston City Councillor Tito Jackson and Rev. Mariama White-Hammond of New Roots AME Church in Dorchester.
  • WBUR's Anthony Brooks on the latest in the Senate race between Senator Ed Markey and Rep. Joe Kennedy, who continue to struggle to differentiate themselves.
  • Author William McKeever argues that we misunderstand sharks, that they're not the terrifying man-eating killers of "Jaws" fame, but essential parts of our fragile ocean ecosystem. And they need our protection.

This program aired on July 27, 2020.
