Title created by ACMA staff based on contents of recording and location of recording.
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 students outside of Johnson Junior High about their thoughts on dropping out of school and reasons for dropping out of school; their teachers, their fellow classmates, and the public school system; ideas for improving the education experience; what they do after school at home; and what they want to do when they are older in regards to additional schooling and/or jobs.
