President Obama Calls For Dialogue On Race

At a memorial service in Dallas Tuesday for five police officers killed last week, President Obama called for Americans to participate in honest dialogue about race.

The president said such conversations are the antidote to the violence and despair set off by the killings of two black men last week by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, incidents that proceeded what followed in Dallas.

Those seven deaths last week, far from Boston, remain the source of confusion and frustration for many families in Greater Boston.
