The Washington Post’s partnership with American University showcases students’ reporting

The Washington Post has partnered with American University to showcase student work through AU's Race, Ethnic and Community Reporting class and through the Community Voice Project .

Reporting class students are investigating the ways in which diverse ethnic groups maintain their traditions and interact with each other in a broad spectrum of D.C. neighborhoods. Here are some of their stories:

• New Mixture, new questions in Petworth

• Two voices from the District’s Southeast

• Mt. Pleasant Latinos share in home cultures

• Florida Avenue Still awaiting its renaissance

• In Mount Pleasant, immigrant communities ‘occupy D.C.’ their way

• Petworth, a suburb in the city

• A new taste and voice emerge in Southeast Washington

• On H Street, gentrification is complex

• Mt. Pleasant Latinos share in home cultures

See a recent video by the Community Voice Project about a drug dealer-turned-falconer, and read the accompanying story.
