Dionne Bussey-Reeder, co-owner of Cheers @ The Big Chair and Director of Community Engagement at the Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative Inc. sits down with Groundswell to talk about the history of the 8th ward of D.C. and how clean energy projects like the community solar project with The Temple of Praise could economically transform entire communities like those east of the Anacostia river and usher in new opportunities for an area with such a rich and storied history.
