Series 19: Empower D.C. - Barry Farm Oral History Project, 2019

 Series
Identifier: dcpl_dcohc019

Scope and Contents

This project interviewed current and former residents to record details about their lives and viewpoints living in a place that, although highly stigmatized and marginalized, has been their home and that of their kin and other members of vital social networks for decades. In documenting the added tension of a community undergoing the dramatic and inexorable shifts of urban redevelopment, changes the community did not request or desire, this project endeavors to capture a disappearing way of life as well as the contours of resistance to displacement.
