Annotation:
In this article the author explores the experiences and perspectives of people who have lived along the Anacostia River that flows through Washington, D.C., over the last 10,000 years. The author describes how linked transformations in environmental and social processes repeatedly created unsettled, contradictory, and unjust relations between people and the natural and built environments. The author describes how the use values of people who live along the river conflict with the exchange values that have dominated the city's history. The author describes how the city's environmental justice movement has emerged from these use values and today confronts a massive redevelopment plan that exploits and undermines the movement.
