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.
James Campbell interviews Mr. Samuels, the Manager and Director of the Anacostia Credit Union. Mr. Samuels talks about the recent robbery at the credit union and how the robbery hurts the people in the community, who are unable to cash their checks and obtain their food stamps. He explains the struggles small businesses are confronting in Anacostia and provides advice for preventing robberies.
