A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
Whose dream is this? For a city that is mostly female, and still mostlly afroamerican, I think that it is a bit weird that the writers, organizers and panel moderator of this event were all white men. Where is everyone else?
they're in prince george's county.
um, the authors of the book happen to be white, so there's not much you can do about that. not sure why the race of the person interviewing them about their book is relevant, but your facts are wrong: DC is no longer mostly afroamerican.
You may wish that my fact are wrong but according to the Census Bureau, DC is 50.7% afroamerican and 38.5 % white
and now you're wrong twice over. the census you cite is 2010 data. in 2011 the black population fell below 50%. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/18/us/18dc.html?_r=3&hpbut you're the one who seems to think that's an important figure that should be used to dictate the makeup of a book discussion panel. i think it's unfortunate we focus on things like that as they tend to divide us or suggest we have more differences than we do things in common.
have any african americans written any good books on dc? share if you got them
Ever heard of Edward P Jones, or Janetta Barras?
White people cant write about anyone other than white people. Or robots. White people can't write about robots.
