Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Aug. 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- The Boston Celtics will not play their first second-round playoff game against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday in Orlando as a part of a larger effort to call attention to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an unarmed Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We get the latest from ESPN's Howard Bryant.
- Thousands are preparing to march Friday, on the anniversary of the historic 1963 civil rights March on Washington. One of them is Brock Satter, co-founder of Mass Action Against Police Brutality, who we speak with from Washington.
- As the national conversation around systemic racism and police brutality continues, we want to talk about how that's resonating at the Republican National Convention and with people of color in Massachusetts. We speak with Rachel Kemp, incumbent state committeewoman for the 2nd Suffolk District for the Massachusetts GOP.
- The story in Jennifer De Leon's new young adult novel "Don't Ask Me Where I'm From" is one of today's Boston. It follows a Latinx girl as she transitions from her diverse Boston school to a predominantly white one through the METCO program.
