The second segment of March 21st’s WCVB On The Record Sunday Roundtable. Mary Anne Marsh and Virginia Buckingham discuss Lebron James joining the Boston Red Sox ownership group. The superstar athlete and his longtime business partner, Maverick Carter, will become the first Black partners in the history of Fenway Sports Group. Is it enough to turn the corner after a long history of racism in Boston sports?
Next, who in American politics had the best or worst week? On one side Mary Anne looks at Atlanta Sheriff Jay Baker for his now-infamous comments following targeted attacks on Asian Americans in Atlanta. On the other, Virginia Buckingham focuses on representatives who delayed Massachusetts students returning to school.
Also in this segment: St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone again but its traditions remain on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Will Boston, a famed center of Irish-American heritage, bring back the festivities in the future?
