The Root Day of Service

On January 19, 2009, The Root teamed up with the nonprofit group Washington Parks & People to sponsor a clean-up of Northeast Washington's Marvin Gaye Park in honor of the Martin Luther King Holiday. Check out photos of this project, part of the urban green movement which seeks to create jobs, reduce crime, educate young people and promote public health through the revitalization of natural spaces.
