April 26 | Kyla Sommers at Politics and Prose Bookstore with Kojo Nnamdi and Tom Sherwood

Join us next Wednesday, April 26, at 7:00pm for a discussion with Kyla SommersWhen the Smoke Cleared: The 1968 Rebellions and the Unfinished Battle for Civil Rights in the Nation's Capital - with Kojo Nnamdi and Tom Sherwood — at Conn Ave.

When the Smoke Cleared tells the story of the Washingtonians who seized the moment to rebuild a more just society, one that would protect and foster Black political and economic power. A riveting account of activism, urban reimagination, and political transformation, Kyla Sommers's revealing and deeply researched narrative is ultimately a tale of blowback, as the Nixon administration and its allies in Congress thwarted the ambitions of DC's reformers, opposing civil rights reforms and self-governance.
