The question college students should have been asking, however, was […]

Lorenzo T.: Homelessness from the other side

As Lorenzo unpacks the H street-based hotdog chart where he works, the crisp November morning reminds him of other mornings he spent on this street – when he lived there. Known by his friends as the “Dirty Bush Man,” Lorenzo, who would only give “T.” as a last name, lived on the streets of D.C. […]
