The National Gallery of Art has one of the largest art collections in America. But how diverse are the artists?
Fresh off winning reelection as D.C. mayor, Muriel Bowser took to Facebook for a late night gripe about mumbo sauce, a condiment many Washingtonians hold dear.
“Is anybody else annoyed by Mumbo sauce? I wish people would stop suggesting that it is quintessential DC. I’m just saying I was a full grown woman before I had heard of mumbo sauce! So there, I’ve said it.”
Her comments became a proxy war for a number of hot button topics in the district: What is quintessential D.C. anyway? Who gets to decide? Where does mumbo sauce come from, and why has D.C. claimed it even though it has roots in Chicago? Kojo explores all these questions and more.
