Summary:
Purpose of meeting is to gather input from community members to create a full and complete history of Anacostia and its people; and to create an organization dedicated to assisting in the development of the history of Anacostia, including collecting photographs and artifacts. John Kinard speaks of the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum (ANM), the importance of history, and upcoming exhibit, Anacostia Story. Almore Dale speaks about ANM and developing documentation of Anacostia history. A George Washington University student presents a report which summarizes the reconciliations of Anacostians about the history of Anacostia, and a slideshow explaining history of Barry Farms and Anacostia, including the Freedmen's Bureau, prominent Anacostians, and local businesses. Louise Hutchinson speaks about the lose of landmarks because of the city's criteria for what is important and valuable; and explains how the community members can be helpful in collecting, documenting, preserving, and curating the history of Anacostia.
