Boston prides itself on being prosperous and progressive. So why are white people the ones disproportionately prospering? And what barriers to prosperity does the city put before Black Bostonians? Those are the questions at the center of a new documentary film, "A Reckoning in Boston."

We speak with Kafi Dixon, a producer and one of the film's subjects, and James Rutenbeck, the filmmaker.

This segment aired on May 6, 2021.
