How should the D.C. provide oversight for its public schools? What do new polling numbers and endorsements suggest about the Maryland Gubernatorial race? And how are Virginia's Democrats planning to flip key districts in November?
In the play “Yellowman,” an African American couple fall in love in a Southern community fraught with class and color barriers. Alma, a dark skinned woman, is ridiculed for her appearance by her own mother, who wants to see her daughter advance in society. Eugene, who is light-skinned, is judged by his darker father, who believes his son will never face discrimination. Their story comes to life at Anacostia Playhouse this summer, drawing from the past to inform our complicated relationship with race in the present day.
