Kojo sits down with three young organizers to talk about climate activism and this week's D.C. Climate Strike.
A recent study of museum catalogs in the United States found a lack of diversity at many major art museums, including the National Gallery of Art.
There, close to 90 percent of pieces were created by white men and less than three percent were by artists of color.
So, are local museums and artists interested in diversifying their galleries? We explore the motivations behind whose work gets shown and hear from local activists protesting the lack of inclusion.
