The Root DC celebrates one year

One year ago, The Root DC debuted, and the response from readers has been inspiring. Whether we’re covering the collapse of city leadership or the plight of black radio, readers have shared their thoughts and guided us as we record life in the city and suburbs of black Washington. We thank you for an amazing year and urge you to stay with us for many more. Here are some of the highlights from our inaugural year.
