About Us

As students enrolled in the City after the Civil Rights course at American University, we were tasked with the opportunity to write about Anacostia. Through our site visits, we discovered the untold stories of the community members, businesses, and workers of Anacostia. We hope this website serves as a platform to share the stories of Anacostia as well as provide history and data to help you fully understand this neighborhood.
