From the event notice:
Come and join us for a light brunch and have a candid conversation with the authors of the seminal book on District politics and government - Dream City: Race, Power and the Decline of Washington, DC - which was republished last year as a 20th Anniversary edition. What do authors Tom Sherwood and Harry Jaffe think about the District’s stature and outlook now, 21 years after the publication of their chronicle of corruption and decline? What is the state of race relations and politics in the nation's capital? What has changed for better or for worse and what remains unchanged? Is the District in decline today, or are we on the rise?
