MLK Ave and Good Hope Road SE, 2008

Streets named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are common–there are nearly a thousand across the country, including in Washington, DC, Prince George’s County, and Baltimore. But those streets are more likely to be in racially segregated and economically depressed neighborhoods; according to one study, people who live in neighborhoods with streets named after King have incomes on average $6,000 less than people who don’t. We explore Martin Luther King Jr Avenue in the District–its history and future.
