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.
