Coronavirus, meet Capitalism

There’s now a pop-up Coronavirus supply store on Florida Ave NE, selling Purell, Clorox bleach, and face masks. But unlike sellers on Amazon, the entrepreneur behind it says she’s not trying to price gouge – she wants to help people in the community get what they need.


Shaw Dog Park plays dead

Only a day before the park’s annual board meeting, they received notice that it would be closed for a year as part of the new Banneker construction; that’s now been extended to a year and a half, depriving furry friends of one of the best play spaces in the densely-doggified region. 


Stop-and-frisk disparities continue

3/4 of the stops were of black residents, compared to 14% white people and 7% Hispanic. The police department says it’s too soon to conclude that its officers’ stops are prejudiced; black residents make up 45% of the D.C. population, and white people make up 37%. 


HumanitiesDC grants open
