Listen: Tamika Jones Sings a Song for Anacostia

Anacostia is the inner city in a lot of outsiders' minds, but not all of the Southeast D.C. neighborhood is densely populated. Anacostia Unmapped contributor John Johnson — who often takes his young daughter along on interviews — talks with mother and songwriter  about how her perception of the neighborhood has changed over the years. For Jones, "infamous Anacostia" offers a lot to anybody who wants to share a leafy park or a good view with their family.
