Woodson's NCNE, of which he is president, is a Washington, D.C.--based nonprofit group that supports neighborhood-based initiatives to reduce crime, restore families, create economic enterprise and employment, and revitalize low-income communities.
The NCNE president remembers that his father used to take the children to his workplace early in the morning, walk in with a tray of fresh cinnamon rolls, and chat with them.
