From the producers of What’s With Washington, 51st is a series about Washingtonians’ fight for representation. D.C.’s 700,000 residents don’t get to elect a voting representative to Congress, and the federal government can block their laws. 51st will trace how racism, party politics, and even an attempted mutiny in Pennsylvania have stood in the way of the city’s path to full representation. We’ll also try to figure out if D.C. has a real shot at achieving statehood today. Could D.C. ever be the 51st state?
