On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The identity of D.C.’s Anacostia neighborhood is complicated. It’s an historic corner of the city that Frederick Douglass once called home. It also sits in the District’s poorest ward – a corner of the nation’s capital that hasn’t benefited from the economic boom that’s taken root in so many of its neighborhoods. Kojo begins a series of live broadcasts from the Anacostia Playhouse by exploring how life inside the neighborhood squares with the many ways people perceive it.
