The sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is prompting members of Washington's private school community to look inward.
When the death of 27-year-old local teacher Alonzo Smith was ruled a homicide in December, questions regarding the role of special police in Washington, D.C., began circulating in Anacostia — where Smith was found in the custody of armed security guards, unconscious and handcuffed. Smith died later in an area hospital. While his case is still being investigated by the U.S. Attorney’s office, Smith’s mother, Beverly, has called for an independent investigation. We’ll air a conversation between Anacostia Unmapped’s Kymone Freeman and Beverly Smith, and revisit Smith’s case with Netfa Freeman, one of her biggest advocates.
- Netfa Freeman Events coordinator, Institute for Policy Studies and Pan African Community Action activist
- Kymone Freeman Co-Owner, We Act Radio; Contributor "Anacostia Unmapped"
