Finding America:The Fresh Prince of Anacostia

Season 2017 Episode 21 | 6m 14s

Kymone Freeman believes that everyone has a story to tell. At We Act Radio, the radio personality and activist cultivates the authentic voices of Anacostia, his historically black and underreported Washington D.C. neighborhood. Like Kymone’s hero Frederick Douglass, “The Lion of Anacostia,” the community holds strong in the face of gentrification and displacement.
