We'll go beyond the political wheeling and dealing and explore Capitol Hill as a neighborhood: one of D.C.'s oldest and largest. We'll find out what efforts are afoot to reconnect the Hill with the Anacostia River. We'll consider the future of a massive plot of land known as Reservation 13. Plus, we'll meet the man behind one of the Hill's best-known watering holes. And we'll remember a community leader whose impact on the area still looms large.

This week's Metro Connection is part of "Kojo At The Capitol," a week of broadcasts by WAMU 88.5's The Kojo Nnamdi Show from the Folger Shakespeare Library on Capitol Hill, in conjunction with Roll Call newspaper.
