On the 3200 Block of 8th St. SE there is a street light that is in need of repair. This is a major public safety issue. Well lit areas can help to reduce crime. I reported it to the Office of Unified Communications & the District Department of Transportation. It is expected to be fixed within two weeks. I will keep you updated. #WeAreWard8 #AStandardOfExcellence

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 8 C will be leading the efforts in the protesting of the license renewal of Holiday Liquors. Holiday Liquors has been caught multiple times selling alcohol to minors. Even after checking a minors identification, and being showed that the person was a minor, Holiday Liquors still choose to sell to a minor. The safety and health of our children and community is not for sale. It is important that we organize as a community to address this. Please fill out the survey to inform the ANC and the DC Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration your position on the renewal of this license.

Black man and Black Woman. You are the mothers and fathers of civilization. You are not [email protected] and b*tches. Our children have young impressionable minds and they are learning from watching us. The language we use and the way we talk to each other influences our behavior. I challenge you all to read these two books and rise above this foolishness into the thinking of God. Black men, we have to be better examples for our community. We are in a state of emergency. PEACE.

Today in #BlackHistory May 19, 1925 Malcolm Little (Malcolm X and later El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz), Muslim minister and human rights leader, was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Malcolm X grew up in Lansing, Michigan and in 1946 was sentenced to prison where he became a member of the Nation of Islam. After his parole in 1952, he became one of the Nation’s leaders and chief spokesman.

In 1953, he was named assistant minister of Temple Number One in Detroit and by 1954 he had established Boston’s Temple Number Eleven and expanded Philadelphia’s Temple Number Twelve. Until his departure from the organization in March, 1964, Malcolm X was the public face of the Nation of Islam. After leaving, Malcolm X became a Sunni Muslim, made a pilgrimage to Mecca, and founded the Organization of Afro-American Unity. On February 21, 1965, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was assassinated in New York City’s Audubon Ballroom. At his funeral, Ossie Davis delivered his eulogy and described him as “our shining Black prince.”

His autobiography, “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” was published shortly after his death and in 1992 the film “Malcolm X” was released. Many streets and schools around the country are named after Malcolm X, including El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz Academy in Lansing. In 1999, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative postage stamp in his honor and in 2005 Columbia University opened the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center. The Malcolm X House Site in North Omaha, Nebraska is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of the importance of Malcolm X to American history and national culture.

Commissioner Salim Adofo Calls for Protest of Mart Liquor

Commissioner Salim Adofo, Chairperson of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 8C, is rallying the community to protest the renewal of the liquor license of Mart Liquor on the grounds of the adverse effect of the establishment on peace, order, and quiet, per ABRA Code 25-313.


The rally will take place on Malcolm X Day, Wednesday May 19 at 4:30 pm. The rally will take place at the intersection of Malcolm X Ave SE and Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE. The goal of the rally is to secure 500 petition signatures from residents in the community to deliver to the Alcohol Beverage Control Board.

Situated at the intersection of Malcolm X Ave SE and Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE, Mart Liquor continues to be a major contributor to many of the ills that plague the Ward 8 community. This establishment continues to exploit and capitalize off of the poverty and lack of economic opportunity in this vulnerable community.

Currently, there are five establishments that sell alcohol, within this corridor. However, there are no grocery stores, banks or fruit and vegetable stands. According to the DC Health Equity Report, “The stressors of living in neighborhoods with inadequate access to economic and educational opportunities has been flagged as indicative of trauma at the community level. Reduced community safety in the District is correlated with gaps in health-promoting community resources. Evidence shows that factors such as lack of jobs, racial and economic segregation, concentrated poverty, and high alcohol outlet density negatively impact community safety, quality of life, and neighborhood quality, as well as the likelihood of violence.”

In addition to seeking petition signatures, Commissioner Adofo will also use this opportunity to provide opportunities to help create a more healthier community. For more information on how to get involved contact [email protected]
