WAMU 88.5’s The Kojo Nnamdi Show will leave the studio to record the latest in its series of Kojo in Your Community discussions on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church (1500 Harvard St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20009). Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., ET. The event is free and open to the public.

The conversation will focus on the changing face of the Columbia Heights neighborhood and how its transformation is affecting schools, housing, and the community at large. Local residents will have the chance to weigh in on the conversation by sharing their questions and comments with host Kojo Nnamdi. The discussion will be taped to air at noon, ET, on October 11, on WAMU 88.5.

Kojo in Your Community discussions are town hall-style meetings in neighborhoods throughout the District, Maryland and Virginia. The series began in 2001 as WAMU In Your Ward, and was expanded and renamed in 2003 to include the entire metro area.
