Conversations on Blessing the Block Season 2
This summer I had the privilege of once again executive producing a series for Anacostia River Church called Conversations on Blessing the Block. This season we got to sit down with authors and academics to discuss how the core directives found in Jeramiah 29:4-11 are worked out in black communities. Below are links to the entire series.
Conversation focused on the history and culture of Anacostia with Jessica Grieser author of The Black Side of the River: Race, Language, and Belonging in Washington, DC.
Conversation focused on housing patterns, development, and trends in black communities with Derek Hyra author of Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Conversation focused on a major issue that affects quality of life in black communities with Kristin Henning author of Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth.
