Three cities, one dream?
There's so much overlap in the urban problems that plague Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Maryland and Richmond, Virginia, e.g., population decline, segregation, underperforming public schools, high poverty rates, transportation challenges, gentrification, sprawl, and the occasional disregard for historical treasures. The QB Crew doesn't understand the cities' choice to opt for competition over cooperation. Why the rivalries? Could we stop resenting each other and putting each other down? Could we work together to make improvements for the region as a whole? It should be about DMV, not D and M and V as isolated entities.
Please help us make sense of this, fledglings! Are community art and grass roots journalism projects the answer? What can The QB Crew do to better the region where most of our contributors were born and raised? Discuss!
