Here is a picture of my site while it is undergoing plans for development. On the fence surrounding the building you can see a sign for someone running for office.
This is a picture of Shaw near my site back when it was known to be “Black Broadway.” Government sponsored projects have drastically shifted the demographics of the Shaw neighborhood.
This is a mural painted near my site, showing the neighborhoods appreciation for its African American heritage. Although the government has put funding towards development projects that have been known to displace African Americans in this area, they should also put funding towards projects like this so Shaw’s older residents know it is still […]

The stars and signatures on the concrete have been there for decades and have lasted through many drastic […]
