The Revenge of Ward 9 - Poem By Patrick Washington
Forty Under 40 2018 The List!
Uh, what’s happening, PG?
They say you got your name from some King in Denmark
But that’s a temporary condition too
Can you dig it, PG?
This poem will not end up on a diss track
No east versus west
…maybe a little north versus south
I mean, This Is America…
Forty Under 40 2018 Nominations Now Open!
Seven years ago, the Prince George’s County Social Innovation Fund (PGCSIF) launchedForty UNDER 40 Prince George’s as a pilot effort to identify the best and brightest in Prince George’s County across a range of sectors and categories. We were confident that the County was ripe with exceptional talent and we simply wanted to offer a hometown recognition of excellence, youth, and leadership. Every year since, the numbers of nominations have increased and the competition has become even more intense. This year was no different.

Seat at the Table: A Reflection from Brittney Drakeford
Proud and honest. Seat at the Table, PGCSIF’s new potluck style dinner forums, brings together educators, faith leaders, policy makers, community organizers, and entrepreneurs from across Prince George’s County to discuss the benefits and beauty of being a Prince George’s resident, as well as some of the barriers and challenges facing the County today.
On Saturday, August 12th, 2017, fourteen educators, faith leaders, policy makers, policy makers, community organizers, and entrepreneurs from Prince George’s County convened at the historic Ridgeley Rosenwald School for one of three Seat at the Table Dinners. Hosted by Brittney Drakeford and Mike Powell, the evening’s discussion covered a myriad of topics, including food justice, economic development, civic engagement, and the infamousP.G. County versus Prince George’s County debate.
