From the D.C. Public Library:

“1968 was a momentous year in US history. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated. The Poor People’s Campaign, which Dr. King was organizing at the time of his death, brought activists from across the nation to the District.

Locally, 1968 brought the groundbreaking of what would become the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, the founding of the Duke Ellington School for the Arts and the opening of Federal City College, now part of the University of the District of Columbia.

This year, the Library is hosting a series of programs and events to highlight the experiences that shaped 1968 locally and nationally titled, “The People’s University.” This month, the celebration starts with an online exhibit, “Evolutions and Legacies: Martin Luther King Jr. and D.C., 1957-1972.” (more…)

From Legacy:

“On February 4, 2018, Ravi Shankar died in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He is survived by his mother, Maya Devi, two brothers, Tarun Shankar, and Arun Shankar, his wife Geeta Shankar and two children, Jatin, 19, and Raychal Shankar, 17. Ravi was 49 years old. Ravi was born and raised in Delhi, India. He was an enthusiastic badminton and squash player in his early teen years, before turning his attention to tennis.

At age 19, he opened up his own tennis academy, which was the third largest tennis academy in the region. He was proud of that. He moved to the United States in the mid-1990’s. He worked at the Drilling Tennis Shop in downtown Washington, DC for eight years. He then went out on his own and opened the Tennis Zone tennis shop, first in Chevy Chase. Later he moved the store to Glover Park where it has operated for the last five years.

A man of exceptional talent and a warm personality, Ravi had an unparalleled ability to string tennis and squash racquets, matched with a sophisticated knowledge of string types and racquet differences that benefitted beginners and professionals alike. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Just a heads up that Five Guys Navy Yard is closed again for “renovations”. We stopped in yesterday and they told us that they would be closed for renovations until baseball season and that they would have milkshakes available for purchase when they reopened.

This same thing happened a couple years back, and the restaurant looked the same when they reopened so I figured it was equipment or something. Stinks for the staff.”

“Dear PoPville,

I found this curious and thought you might too. The pic is of an envelope taped to Sticky Rice’s door on H St. NE that says “Confidential for Owner.” The same envelope was taped to the doors of most businesses this morning between 13th and 10th (and maybe more but those were the streets I walked between).”

What do you guys think, some sorta marketing thing? Or the key to the collusion?
