Description

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.

In the second session, Clement asks Kuumba about her affiliation with CORE and other organizations involved in the re-development of 14th Street.

Kuumba returned to Columbia Heights before King’s assassination where she worked going door to door collecting signatures as part of an effort to gain voting representation for DC citizens. She also worked to organize opposition to housing discrimination.
