Check it: Summer Youth Produced an Awesome Documentary on Anacostia

Just got the link to this amazing - and at under ten minutes totally accessible - documentary feature on what Anacostia is about and the businesses that bring it to life.

Good Hope: Anacostia from chris keener on Vimeo.

Produced by Chris Keener, DC Commission on Arts & Humanities, and some truly awesome teenagers with the Summer Youth Employment Program's media program, this video is a great way to learn about some of the businesses and people that make up the neighborhood. [I do have a small role in the video but as you will see that is not why I think the video is cool. ha]

Thank you for this video. The young people did a great job. As a Native Washingtonian, I learned a great deal about the other side of the city that I never knew.
