On March 22, 2021, the state plans to move, for the first time, to Phase 4 of its reopening: our new normal. Who's still standing after all the shutdowns? And how did they, and will they, survive moving forward?

We turn our attention to Black-owned businesses, which faced difficulty in accessing capital before the pandemic, and now have been particularly strained by lack of access to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans given by the federal government for small business relief. We speak with Segun Idowu, executive director for the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts.
