In this clip Barbara Barrow conducting "man on the street" interviews in Boston's South End asks what the new second Suffolk District senator should change in the community. Overall the program focuses on the Boston political arena. Host Barbara Barrow speaks with State Senator Bill Owens about his winning his second election, his reelection campaign, the potential conflict between minority men and white women competing for the same jobs, his Senate committee to research hiring practices, and proposals he has put forth related to Boston's South End. Additional segments include "man on the street" interviews conducted on the day of the primary election (in which Say Brother asked people who they preferred - Owens or his opponent Royal Bolling - and what issues the winner should focus on), an excerpt from Jesse Jackson's November press conference in Boston, and the "Community Calendar." Produced by Barbara Barrow. Directed by Conrad White.
