D.C., and opened up establishments.
Very, very few of them have survived.
But they certainly were very prominent.

The Washington black community was able to succeed
beyond his wildest dreams.
I mean, we had our own newspapers, our own restaurants,
our own theaters, our own small shops,
our own clubs, our own Masonic lodges.

They go to the same stores and shops.
