U Street and The White House

05 Nov 2008

In Washington DC, the U Street neighborhood is often compared to Harlem as a locus of black life that has seen the highs and lows of art and city living. It is also dear to Desedo, as our first project was Raafi’s short film U Street Blue. And it was the place to be last night after We won, sent in by our friend Erin.

Better still? Sean’s clip of people marching down 16th street en route to the White House, folks took over the tunnel under Dupont Circle for a dance party.

I love my country? It sounds so strange, but feels. so. good.
