Educator, journalist, public intellectual and proud son of East Baltimore, D. Watkins’ new book, “The Beast Side,” is nothing short of a literary classic for the 21st century, chronicling  life on the streets of one of America’s great and deeply flawed cities, Baltimore. We’ll talk to Watkins about his transcendent book, politics, race, education and more. It’s all coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
