In just a matter of weeks, the "Embrace" statue honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King will be unveiled on Boston Common. It was spearheaded by King Boston, a group working in connection with the Boston Foundation to promote racial and economic justice in the city. Recently, the group changed its name to Embrace Boston to better encompass their efforts. Gregory Ball, the Director of Digital Strategy and Production at Embrace Boston, joins Nichole for a discussion on the state of racial equity in the Hub. He also has an update on the memorial and details on a new cultural center that's in the works. Remember wandering your local mall back in the 80's and 90's, spending your weekends with friends eating fast food and shelling out your allowance? Malls aren't quite the same these days, but last month, a piece of retail history was opened at the Natick Mall that brought back a lot of fun memories and nostalgia. Charlene Leith and Joan Robblee, who both worked at the Mall back in the 90's, talk about their experiences back in the day and share the story of the time capsule being opened up!

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
