On this week’s broadcast, David Wright takes an in-depth look at critical race theory and the issue of teaching kids about systemic racism in our society. Then we have excerpts from two Rhode Island PBS documentaries. First up, in “Breaking Good,” Contributing Producer/Director Dorothy Dickie explores the escalation of the incarceration of women in the United States since the war on drugs was declared back in the 1980’s. Then, in “Hi Neighbor,” Producer/Director John Smith tells the story of the legendary local Narragansett Brewing Company. Its rollercoaster history spans more than 130 years. Finally, we have a commentary with Lylah Alphonse on the recent COVID-19 surge in Rhode Island and around the United States.
