The cooks and laborers who built the foundation of our county's culinary traditions have often gone unnoticed throughout history.
In the summer of 1968, after a violent uprising that left major corridors of Washington D.C. destroyed, the federal government funded a community policing project to establish ties between law enforcement and the neighborhoods they served. The experiment, known as the Pilot District Project, was one of the first attempts to repair relationships between D.C.’s largely white police force and mostly black residents. Kojo examines the project’s roots and explores how it impacted the way Washingtonians view community policing today.
