The collection, Street Interviews, contains a series of interviews conducted with locals at various locations around Washington, D.C.'s Anacostia neighborhood between April 3 and July 27, 1972.

Most of the interviews were transferred to VHS in August 1990.
Summary:
Current and former residents of Anacostia speak of a time when there were dirt streets in Anacostia, when everyone knew everyone else, and when residents did not lock their doors in the tight knit community. They talk about how Anacostia and Washington, D.C. has changed in regards to housing conditions and prices, increased crime, men hanging out on corners all day drinking, and parents not looking after their kids who throw stones and break windows as well as a lack of concern from landlords and lack of respect towards police officers.
