Abstract:

The story of H Street Northeast in Washington, D.C., and the surrounding neighborhoods is rooted in the history of a prosperous black commercial district transformed to a neglected and drug infested crime zone following the 1968 riots. The Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. prompted a visceral response that devastated H Street. Nearly 40 years later, the neighborhood is returning to past vibrancy. Gentrification is returning H Street to its former glory, but the facade of new construction conceals deeper changes. Racial and income demographics are shifting, the cost of living is rising, and the cultural identity is changing. Long-term residents are forced to adapt, and new comers are learning important lessons about what it means to live in a multi-racial and multi-cultural neighborhood. 'Heal H Street' tells the personal stories of residents using multi-media, long form essay, a multi-media project website, and a web based photo essay.
