Map of the Anacostia River or Eastern Branch region D.C.

Anacostia, the neighborhood in the Southeast part of Washington, was originally known as “the remainder of the District.” And in many ways that’s how it’s been treated for years. This spring, WAMU presents “Anacostia Unmapped,” a project that invites people who live and work in the community to take us inside — to the beloved street corners of Anacostia and the changing ones. Residents have lots to say about what’s going on—about transformation and displacement; about crime and community; about the beauty and burden of history.
