Teenagers from two very different neighborhoods of Washington, D.C. got together recently to talk about race, and where they’re from. It’s part of a project run by a teacher who hopes young people can help bridge Washington’s expanding racial and economic divide.

Mikaela Lefrak (@mikafrak) of Here & Now contributor WAMU was there when students from one predominantly black school and one majority white school sat down to get to know one another.
