Title created by ACMA staff from title and interview location transcribed from physical asset.
In the 1970s, Benjamin Davis was the Director of the Area 19 Planning Council, which was funded by Washington, D.C. government, and President of the Board of Directors of Southeast Neighborhood Action Board, Inc. (SENAB).
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.
Summary:
Benjamin Davis talks about his work with Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYCs), which assists youth in preparing for job placements within the community, and the Southeast Neighborhood Action Board. Through both programs, he encounters youth with drug addictions. In this interview, Davis discusses drugs in Anacostia; recovery and programs for drug addicts; the constraints and challenges of working to solve community problems with funds via one-year government contracts; the role of the whole community in combatting drugs; the use of drug substitutions, such as methadone, for drug treatment; physical and social side effects of methadone use; and how to identify and prevent drug use by youth.
