1974 - Acknowledging the neighborhood’s transition

Kerri Richardson Redding’s family moved to the Walter Reed neighborhood in 1974, when she was almost 5 years old. “The neighborhood was turning over from primarily a Jewish neighborhood to an African American middle-class neighborhood in the early ‘70s,” she recalled.

“Growing up in the neighborhood, my brother and I rode our bikes, and all the neighborhood kids — Walter Reed was part of our space.”
