We’ll start with a conversation with Steve Phillips, the co-founder of PowerPAC.ORG, which has worked to mobilize voters in under-represented communities.  In his recent book, Brown is the New White, he argues that people of color and progressive whites constitute a new American majority, and that acting with an understanding of this new reality is key to the future success of the Democratic party. 

Then:  Sammy Hoi has been at the helm of MICA for the past two years, and he has quickly established himself as one of the region’s most imaginative arts leaders.  How does an art school fit into the fabric of Baltimore, and how does the city inform the training of the next generation of artists and creators? 

And our theater Critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews Hand to God at the Studio Theater in Washington, which has extended the play's run to Sunday, October 2.
