Program Description
Program focuses on crime and housing problems in Boston's Spanish-speaking community and approaches to solving them. Host Barbara Barrow speaks with housing inspector Edward Baez (of the South End Little City Hall) about crime and housing, including his work as a housing inspector, drug counselor and minister, the problems he has encountered in the community in his different roles, drug trafficking, and where it occurs in Boston, drug cultures, obtaining assistance from the Boston Police Dept., why he (and others) are afraid to talk to the police, what he is doing to stop the sale of drugs, and what the different agencies in the South End are doing about the problem. Program includes the "Community Calendar" and an encore presentation of a dance solo by a member of the Dance Company of the National Center of Afro-American Artists (to the spiritual "I Told Jesus").
