Meridian Hill Park is a structured urban park located in the Washington, D.C neighborhood of Columbia Heights; it also abuts the nearby neighborhood of Adams Morgan. The park was designed and built between 1912 and 1940. This 12 acre (49,000 m²) formally landscaped site is maintained by the National Park Service as a part of Rock Creek Park, but is not contiguous with that much larger nearby park. Meridian Hill Park is bordered by 15th, 16th, W, and Euclid Streets NW, and sits on a prominent hill 1.5 miles (2.42 km) directly north of the White House. The park has also been unofficially known as “Malcolm X Park” by some city residents.
The Cornel West Theory is a band born in the belly of the beast, Washington DC. inspired by the struggles of DC’s ghettoes, Hip Hop, and the center of world politics, our music is rooted in hip hop, but smashed into a firebrand sound containing elements of punk, go-go, blues, jazz, and industrial noisescapes. No one genre can define or contain us. This is Type 1 music.
