Díaz and Moore: Will 2 new council members make a difference for the Black community in Phoenix?

When the two newest members of the Phoenix City Council are sworn in, it’ll mark the first time the body has had two Black members.

Kevin Robinson and Kesha Hodge Washington won their run-off elections last week. Arizona Republic columnist and editorial board member Greg Moore has written about this, asking whether the two will be transformative or typical.

To talk more about this, The Show talked to Moore and editorial page editor Elvia Díaz.
