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?
Writer Jason Reynolds didn’t see his reality represented in the books he read as a child growing up in D.C. He came of age in an era when the crack epidemic and AIDS were devastating communities and he turned to rap lyrics instead of books to find voices he could relate to. Today, he writes books that earn awards, foster conversations and reflect the experiences of kids in the local classrooms he visits often. We talk with Reynolds about how his D.C. roots shaped his career.
