Last week I was on the Kojo Nnamdi show and it was awesome!
Last week, Kojo Nnamdi did an entire series of shows in Anacostia and talked about a range of topics. I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in one of the segments. I just love talking about Ward 8, specifically Anacostia and Congress Heights. In case you missed that show or some of the other shows I am reposting links to each.
Documenting Change East of the Anacostia River In D.C.
Nikki Peele moved to a D.C. neighborhood East of the Anacostia River roughly a decade ago. For much of that time, she’s documented life in Ward 8 on her blog – and maintained a presence on social media that pushes back against common misconceptions about the side of the city where she lives. Kojo chats with Peele about how the reality of life in that part of D.C. squares with many of the commonly held perceptions of neighborhoods there.
