Here’s the story that New England tells itself: Racism is a Southern problem. But our region’s abolitionist past hides a darker history of racism, slavery and white supremacy. It’s a legacy that lives with us today. This week on “Episode 216” of NEXT, we premiere a special series on racism in New England — produced by the New England News Collaborative and America Amplified. NEXT airs on Mondays on The Point.
