This week we dig in to our roots.

Washington, D.C. is said to be a city of migrants, a place that attracts people from all over the world but rarely holds onto them for long. We'll challenge that stereotype today, digging deep into the changing character of one D.C. neighborhood. Plus, we'll look at the roots of a twenty-year-old riot and how it impacted the city's Latino residents. And, since our theme is "roots," we've got a nod to the plant kingdom with a look at an innovative program to persuade farmers to plant more trees.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Theme from Route 66" by Route 66 Orchestra from The Songs of Route 66]
