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. The five areas of focus for the street interviews include housing, unemployment, education, crime, and drugs. Interviews were conducted by James Campbell with Vilma Beraroucci running the camera. Most of the interviews were transferred to VHS in August 1990.
