Founded in 1980, Sourtheast Voices consist of former residents of the Frederick Douglass Dwellings housing complex in southeast, Washington, D.C. Built as temporary housing for World War II workers, the Frederick Douglass Dwellings were located near land previously owned by Tobias Henson, a former slave. Deemed uninhabitable in 1998, the Frederick Douglass Dwellings were demolished in 2000 to make way for a new mixed-income community.
