Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
Set in D.C. during the post-war Reconstruction period, Aaron Posner’s new play puts race front and center in a twist on Shakespeare’s most problematic play, “The Merchant of Venice.” Posner’s “District Merchants” playfully but powerfully forces audiences to confront the racism and anti-Semitism its black and Jewish characters face daily. We speak with the playwright, lead actor and composer about the contemporary themes in a play whose origins and setting span centuries.
