DIAMOND TEAGUE PARK
Adjacent to the Monique Johnson Anacostia River Center
100 Potomac Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20003
Anyone who met Diamond Teague knew he was special and destined for great heights in this world. As a hard working corpsmember, Diamond's attitude and light was contagious. A great public speaker and motivator, Earth Conservation Corps honors his memory with the Diamond Teague Park -- a protected area adjacent to the Monique Johnson Anacostia River Center.
Since Diamond's passing, Earth Conservation Corps was determined to make sure that Diamond's memory was known and to ensure that his energy as a bright capable leader carried on in the hearts of others who learned about Diamond.
Diamond's father, the Reverend Ivory Teague explains the lasting message of Diamond, "Many face poverty, racism and environmental injustice everyday. Pollution now makes us all endangered. What to do is right here in the plan. We can finish this by finding Diamond inside everyone.”
A very special thank you to Florida Rock properties for the $800,00 dollar contribution for the park's development.
