Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
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.
