This is a physical video of the outside of Howard Hospital. Usually, when I go to my site I am not met with any problems but this time a crisis was occurring and was not permitted to take further pictures. Before, I was able take a couple more picture of the interior of the hospital. This visit I noticed how big of a landmark this album is for many people in the Howard/ U street community. Everyone who was employed and being serviced was black and rarely I would see other people of color. There was also a large emphasis on caring for your own. Howard University Hospital was the first of its kind to care for black people and till this day it primarily cares for those same people and the added comfort and sense of trust is still ever present.
