Scope and Contents:
Through narration and street interviews conducted by James Campbell, Anacostia residents talk about the tight knit, safe community prior to the rise in crime; insignificant employment and recreation opportunities after increased migration to Anacostia as a result of Southwest Urban Renewal projects; how increased population and lack of opportunities lead to increased crime, drug use, and unemployment in Anacostia; government trying to control crime though programs like methadone maintenance rather than dealing with the deepest concerns; and reasons for high rate of unemployment, including inadequate schools, racial discrimination, and ineffective unemployment and social services. Teachers talk about overcrowded classes, outdated curriculum, and the overall education system; students discuss their teachers.
Narration and interviews. Part of Evolution of a Community Audiovisual Records. Interviews product of Street Interviews. AV003499: street interviews and narration from 001505 - 001710 [also on recording: Narration about West African Slave Trade and Out of Africa Narration]. Undated.
Biographical / Historical:
Evolution of a Community, an exhibit at the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum from January 1972 though December 1972, presented the history of Anacostia from post-World War II to the present through photos, text, drawings, video tape programs, and a slide/tape show. Evolution of a Community Part II, also known as Anacostia Today, was on display at the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum from March 1973 though July 1973. The exhibitions developed as a result oral histories collected from Anacostia residents.
