The collection, Housing in Anacostia Video Project, contains original and master video materials created for the short documentary "On Housing," which was produced by the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum. It features video documentation of the highway, streets, and homes in the neighborhood, interviews with residents about the community and the state of rundown housing buildings, and part of a lecture on housing in African American communities.
Summary:
James Campbell interviews former and current residents of Anacostia about housing in Anacostia. A former resident talks about when Anacostia had a rural atmosphere and everybody knew everybody; and current residents talk about the rundown condition of housing. A trained psychiatrist explains what happens psychologically within a community, particularly when a neighborhood is classified as ghetto and residents do not have input in the design of the housing. The short documentary also includes footage of neighborhood businesses, houses, and children playing.
