A play at Anacostia Playhouse explores artistic collaboration across racial divides and auditioning for Shakespeare while black.
At the corner of 6th and H Street NW is Wah Luck House, a building of affordable housing units which is home to the most densely-concentrated group of Chinese residents in D.C. Over the past 40 years, Wah Luck residents have seen the Chinatown and Gallery Place neighborhoods around them drastically change. And recently, they too went through a shift as their building changed hands from one owner to another. Wah Luck House’s sale has raised questions about how the building was previously run ––and concerns about the community’s future.
Kojo gets an update on how Wah Luck House residents fare and the landscape of the District’s affordable housing at large.
