Voices on 14th Street is an oral history project that looks at community activism in the Columbia Heights/Greater 14th Street neighborhood of Washington, DC after the 1968 riots that destroyed a significant portion of the housing stock in that area.

Bell Clement interviews Sister Nia Kuumba about the businesses that existed in the greater 14th Street neighborhood during the 1960s and 70s. Kuumba was born in DC, but came back to the city from New York in the 1960s with CORE, working to enact social change through the non-violent methods of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
