This is the Radio Boston rundown for Sept. 16. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We go beyond the headlines of one of the biggest stories of the week, the treatment of migrants from Venezuela who were lured on to a plane in Texas and dropped off on Martha's Vineyard. We get the latest on the situation on the ground from WBUR's Simón Rios, and a sense of what lies ahead for the migrants from Jeff Thielman, president and CEO of the International Institute of New England. We also hear the migration stories of two South American families that recently arrived in Massachusetts.
  • A mural that aims to celebrate "Unsung Heroes" was unveiled this week across the street from the Freedom House. We talk with the artist, Karmimadeebora McMillan, about why she chose Freedom House, and the power of site-specific artwork. We're also joined by Charla Jones, board member of Now + There, an organization focused on curating public art.

This program aired on September 16, 2022.
