Philip Black

“The Cat in the Hat”: Philip Black calls DC his home and Street Sense his second chance.

It is realllllly hot here in DC today – the sun is shining and there is very little breeze. We went out to the Eastern Market this morning to find Philip Black, also known as “The Cat in the Hat”, and ask him to be our first interviewee. Having already spoken with Philip before we decided he would be the perfect person to begin this journey with. We had a wonderful time hanging out with him and watching him during “showtime” as he calls it. His story is incredible and there is no question that Street Sense has given him hope. We can’t wait to share it with you all; however, due to some mic-issues (first day and all) we have to head back over tomorrow and ask for a re-do… whoops! Learning all the time!

Be sure to check back soon for the video. Johnnie, Philip and I can’t wait for you to see what Street Sense is doing and how it’s impacted Philip and other vendors alike! We’re hoping to have the video up and running on Monday via the Street Sense YouTube account!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  – Abby
