Description

The Langston Terrace Dwellings, twenty-five blocks from the Capitol, was the first federally funded housing project in 1937. Project architect Hilyard Robinson was determined to create a decent, attractive development enhanced by natural materials and public art. This documentary brought many of the the original residents of the community back to D.C. to share their memories.
