This week we pay homage to our fair city's one-of-a-kind culture. We'll visit the District's first public-housing project designed and built by African Americans. We'll motor around town with a cabbie-slash-amateur filmmaker. Plus, we'll hang out with a local band whose songs draw from D.C. in a major way.
