Held at the Anacostia Museum from June 17, 1995 to August 28, 1995, this exhibition was the result of a partnership between the museum and Lucy Ellen Moton Elementary School. During the 1994-95 school years, the students researched the community of Anacostia and produced photographs, poems, stories, drawings, interviews, documents, and personal artifacts. The student efforts were included under the themes: Moten Elementary School, From Our Homes, Institutions and Organizations, and Community Life.
