i find inspiration in the work of rev. joyce brooks, of "hope manna," in northeast washington dc.
here is a video clip of rev. brooks speaking about what her organization does for the community.
this quicktime movie is 4 megabytes in file size and 4 minutes in duration. it was shot, edited and put on the web during a free "web video advocacy for literacy organizations" workshop i taught in the fall of 2002 in room 315 of MLK library in downtown DC.
desiré grogan, from the DC Public Libraries, was immensely helpful to me in setting up that workshop.
