DC is still a predominantly Black city and religion in Black communities is more than just Protestant Christianity. What are the local groups that make up the religious diversity of the nation's capital? How do they play a role in the shifting make up of the city as gentrification and revitalization continue to change the face of "Chocolate City"? Today's show was recorded at the 2022 Religion News Association conference, held in March 2022 in Bethesda, Maryland. Moderator: Adelle Banks, Projects Editor and National Reporter, Religion News Service. Guests: Carole Mumin, a member of Masjid Muhammad, and the first Muslim to work directly for a U.S. President as a White House staffer.

Ryane Nickens, a member at Metropolitan AME Church, and president of the TraRon Center. Ayesha Ali, co-founder of Heart Refuge Mindfulness Community.
