The 17th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Let Freedom Ring Celebration, presented by Georgetown University in collaboration with The Kennedy Center, began with an accusation of inequity.

At Arena Stage, Indecent is a Requiem for Art’s Endurance

Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You Radicalizes Movie Magic


There is a scene in Sorry to Bother You — the much hyped debut film from multihyphenate screenwriter-director Boots Riley — wherein our protagonist Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) is obliged to perform for wealthy, coked out partygoers.
