White, Black American groups ‘swap’ summer interns

A former peacemaker and a black man from Chicago’s Southwest Side are seeing gentrification and social stratification in a whole new way this summer

ADC: Arab American Professionals’ Gateway to DC

When my college advisor told me about the Washington Seminar, I was so excited just thinking about having an internship in Washington DC, where the political sausage is made.
