Dispatches From the Capital

Washington, D.C., is home to a new president in an era of high hopes and challenging conditions. It’s also home to many more with their own hopes and challenges. Some believe change, like Obama, has arrived and is making their lives better. Others are just trying to make a living. These dispatches take a further look at the city first examined in “Dispatches From the Anacostia,” and will follow those living and working around our nation’s capital during this era of change.
