In Gentlemen’s Club this evening we discussed “Sportsmanship.” Our Kindergarten boys learned that it’s important to be gracious winner as well as the importance of embracing the lessons we learn during losses. And no matter what, we always end each contest with a handshake or hug. .

“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” -MLK // A joint MLK remembrance service was held in Southeast DC yesterday where the speaker challenged us around this quote. Believing that every decision we make affects others, he asked us to do the “hard work to get over ourselves,” to live our lives for our neighbors. This requires action, not words. It’s a bold call, but a worthy one. .

A goal this year is to continue exploring neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River. Here’s what’s on the list: 1) A top-rated Hawaiian inspired B&B that offers cooking classes in Marshall Heights, 2) A Civil War fort built to protect the city in Dupont Park, 3) A popular deli named after MLK in Congress Heights, 4) A historic jazz club in Mayfair, 5) Beautiful murals in Deanwood. The list keeps growing. .

DC Ward VIII
—————————————————
#dcward8 #ward8 #ward8dc #mayorbowser #dccommissionontheartsandhumanities
Congress Heights itself was founded in 1890. Colonel Arthur E. Randle,a successful newspaper publisher, decided to found a settlement east of the river which he called Congress Heights. The Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge (now the John Philip Sousa Bridge) began construction in November 1887, and by June 1890 was nearing completion. Randle understood that this new bridge would bring rapid development east of the Anacostia River, and he intended to take advantage of it.

For many years Congress Heights experienced great urban neglect after World War II. However, in the 21st century, Congress Heights received a great deal of attention from the city and urban developers. This past September, the $65 million Entertainment and Sports Arena opened and there are more plans for the neighborhood. To read more about the area’s progress & events, check out @theadvoc8te or visit the website congressheightsontherise.com.
One of DC’s oldest neighborhoods; the name "Anacostia" comes from the anglicized name of a Nacochtank Native Americans settlement along the Anacostia River. Captain John Smith explored the area in 1608, traveling up the "Eastern Branch"—later the Anacostia River—mistaking it for the main body of the Potomac River, and met Anacostans. Even after the founding of Maryland, Leonard Calvert, in a letter to a merchant in London, described "Anacostan" as one of the three best places in the colony for trading with natives. Abolitionist Frederick Douglass, often called "the sage of Anacostia," bought Cedar Hill, the estate belonging to the developer of Uniontown, in 1877 and lived there until he died in 1895. The home is still maintained as a historical site. Anacostia, always part of the District of Columbia, became a part of the city of Washington when the city and District became coterminous in 1878. On January 27, 1886, the House of Representatives Committee on the District of Columbia voted in favor of renaming Uniontown to Anacostia. The historic district retains much of its mid-to-late 19th-century low-scale, working-class character, as is evident in its architecture. In 1957, an Anacostia landmark, the World's Largest Chair, was installed at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and V Street, SE.

Ms. Shirley enrolled in our #Ward8 evening classes earlier this year. While taking classes full time, we also helped her enroll in a culinary training program through @dccentralkitchen. We were there for her graduation from the training program, and we can’t wait to do it all again when she earns her diploma! Compliments to the chef, indeed! 🎉👩🏾‍🍳🎓🎊#transformationtuesday #AoHCARES

@caseytrees planted a flowering dogwood in our front yard and a scarlet oak in the back today. When I was a kid we had dogwood trees in the front yard. I learned to count on them to flower every spring. It’s nice to be able to provide an experience like this for Jackson as he grows. He enjoyed the trees and noticed them immediately, even though it’s an overcast rainy day. Ward 8 in DC is historically underserved, in the built environment in our ward, we see less city-managed landscaping efforts and street beautification than in other parts of the city. It’s up to us to demand environmental justice, and use the resources available to us to help create a greener city. Science has proven the positive effects of green spaces on our well being. Creating a more beautiful ward 8 will propel economic growth and balance the equity that is missing from what we see around us. I recommend the existing @doee_dc programs that empower #dc residents to help mitigate stormwater pollution in the #anacostiariver @congressforthenewurbanism works to empower those who are building better places.

Have a closer look at the things we gifted a young mother of 3. She requested items for her baby, self care products and generic household supplies. She also mentioned she liked to cook, do her nails and anticipates sharing with her family so we made sure she had plenty to go around. #WECAREUSA 🇺🇸

🎖Ballou S.T.A.Y is where I earned my Barber stripes 💈Sometimes folks ask me where I went to Barber School, and when I respond, “Ballou S.T.A.Y”, they frown a bit and they say, “🤨 Ballou?” I then say with a straight face & even more with my chest...”Yeah, Ballou S.T.A.Y”! I have gained life long knowledge and expertise from Ward 8 schooling, and I am PROUD of it! Great minds in Ward 8 💪🏾Ballou S.T.A.Y all day💈 #balloustay #ward8dc #balloustaydc #dcbarber #mybarberschool #imabarber #faded #dcbarbershop
When Kings lead we all grow. So #proud of my guys for teaching each other today. Each king taught a #sunsalutation as well as a pose of their choice to prepare the body and mind for meditating. The skills they focused on include projection, focus and leadership. My guys have been putting in WORK to get here and are all better examples of black excellence because of their dedication. I’m so proud of these young men and how far they’ve come. Soon they’ll take this knowledge back and share it with loved ones to create real change in our community. That’s what Khepera and #YogaMaat are all about. Empowerment. Balance. Truth. Love. Hope. Integrity. Self Discipline.
Come learn from them at our end of year Wellness party this Saturday. Visit @theboysinstitute for more info. #kheperawellness #ward8dc #southeastdc #yogamaat

#ADOPTABLE Mike! 🐾 he’s ~2 years old, blind in one eye & looking for a forever home where he has a canine sibling. His fosters say: "Once he settles in to a new situation he is goofy and affectionate. He's a great pal for any adventure, even just laying around on the couch. Overall, he is a quiet, playful, and by-your-side companion. He is a great office dog and a great running partner! He would also be happy at doggy daycare or not - he just prefers to be with his person. He loves the water, but isn't a big swimmer. He can be self-motivated to play in the house, but isn't over-the-top. He refuses to be left out, so be prepared for a lovefest if you want to show your other dog affection. And he's very food-motivated so will be delighted to learn whatever you have to teach him." Please SHARE! This handsome boy's been waiting for a home to call his own for too long! ♥️Learn more about him at @rdr_adoptme_mike & @ruraldogrescue
