Demonstrating Dissent:


To Jennifer Smith of Philadelphia, things did not seem all that different at first standing on 16th Street in Columbia Heights on Friday night. “It seems like all the same kids,” Smith remarked, “the same sort of response, the same tactics.” But things were certainly not as they were supposed to be. In anticipation of…

A Life Dedicated to Learning

Each year, he says, several students write about how the death of someone close to them affects their feelings about religion. “I often can’t predict…

Freedom and Justice for All…


Misguided hate Sanjeev Kumar (MSB ‘04) was en route to work last Thursday, trying to put the tragic events of the past days out of his mind. Taking the GUTS bus to the Rosslyn metro, he rode the towering escalator down to the platform to catch the train into the city. As the doors of…

Game On: Basketball life from here to 26th Street


They come from everywhere: lawyer’s offices, classrooms, straight off the streets.

Go-Go: The Districts own music


“Are you gonna go in there?” one of the young black men asked us, half feigning shock. The four of us, all white Georgetown students, were apparently quite conspicuous, standing on the corner of Georgia and Morton at midnight one Friday. “Don’t go in there, for the love of God don’t go in there,” he…

Paying the Price for Peace


His hair is white now. The Jesuit often dresses in faded jeans and muted plaids, not the black and white that many of his order wear.
