This weekend, UrbanArias, Arlington’s resident opera company, launched the third offering in their eclectic virtual season. The film, dwb (driving while black), is a montage of poetic and haunting moments examining the trials and triumphs Black mothers experience as their children come of age in a society plagued by racism and inequality. 

Directed and choreographed by NYC-based filmmaker Du’Bois A’Keen and starring powerhouse soprano Karen Slack, the film incorporates elements of hip hop dance, music video styling, and intimate storytelling to bring the viewer into the heart and mind of The Mother as she contemplates giving her son keys to the car. The soundtrack features UrbanArias Founder and Artistic Director Robert Wood conducting members of the Inscape Chamber Orchestra.

Are you interested in joining a community where you’ll continue to enjoy your current lifestyle with the added advantages of retirement community living — such as a gym or pool onsite, meal plan options, and when you need extra support as you age, it would be available? Join us via Zoom on Wednesday, May 5 from 3-4:30 p.m. to learn about different models of life plan (continuing care) retirement communities, where care is provided throughout the continuum of your life.

We will be joined by a panel of representatives from three CARF-accredited facilities, The Hermitage in Alexandria, Westminster-Canterbury of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester and Williamsburg Landing in Williamsburg, who will share information and answer your questions about these communities and how they work. In 2021 we are continuing our mission of education in the areas of right-sizing, retirement communities, and of course, selling and buying real estate. To register, please contact Dick Nathan at [email protected].

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA Regulations (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Parts 1500-1508), the Department of Defense, Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) has issued a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the construction of the Pentagon Remote Delivery Facility (RDF) Roof Structural Strengthening Project.

To meet the needs of the military branches that operate flights at the Pentagon, the RDF Roof must support certain helicopter vehicle weights under both landing and operation conditions.
