A look into the battle between Maryland and D.C. to host Washington's football team. And we speak to the newly elected Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro.
After years of neglect, Ivy City and its historic yet abandoned centerpiece, the Crummell School, has a redevelopment plan. The neighborhood, nestled to the northeast of Gallaudet University and nearby NoMA, will see its 105-year-old school transformed into a community center and more than 300 rental units and retail space grow around it. But the redevelopment plan isn’t sitting well with local community groups and residents who say the vision is another pro-gentrification strategy that saps the area of affordable housing, outdoor recreation space and community input. Kojo and his guests explore the looming transformation of a historic D.C. neighborhood.
