Girls Rock! DC performance

Girls Rock! DC performance

School’s out for summer, and some young people in the region are trading in their books for guitars and turntables. One local organization provides a creative space for girls, non-binary, and trans youth to develop musical skills and learn about social issues – all while figuring out what it means to be in a band. Kojo explores the effort to engage young people throughout the D.C. area through music education – and meets a few of the campers gearing up for this year’s Girls Rock! D.C. showcase.
