Kojo speaks with "Speak No Evil" novelist and D.C. native Uzodinma Iweala about his second novel and how his local upbringing affects his storytelling.

And, how do those efforts translate to a greater sense of community throughout the rest of the year? Kojo hosts a discussion with Washingtonians about what they’re doing for area students and why.
Call in from 12-12:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, September 7, to join the conversation!
