This is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 1. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Monday in two cases, one involving Harvard and another the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, that claim the institutions' consideration of race for applicants is discriminatory and unconstitutional. The outcome could impact roughly 19 million students who attend colleges and universities in the country each year. WBUR education reporter Max Larkin joins the conversation.
  • In 1965, Dorchester became home to the country's first ever community health center, then called Columbia Point Health Center. Nearly 60 years later, 50% of Bostonians get their health care from a community health center. We speak with health care experts in the city to hear why these centers were revolutionary for the industry.
  • As part of Cognoscenti's 10th birthday, we're bringing you conversations from Cog contributors. This week, Kelly Carter Jackson, associate professor of Africana studies at Wellesley College, joins to talk about a story she wrote about Ethel Phillips and Black patriotism.

This program aired on November 1, 2022.
