Mary Clark: a leading lady in the international community
Click the video above for a quick look at Mary Clark, founder and director of the International Marketplace.
If you drive on Lafayette Road and 38th Street you are bound to encounter a plethora of Mexican, Chinese and Asian restaurants.
You may even encounter a hidden gem, such as a single block of mixed restaurants spanning from Ethiopian, Cuban, Peruvian, El Salvadorian, Greek, Japanese and Guatemalan menu items. All in one block.
But you would not have found this diversity and variety 10 years ago.
In 2005, Mary Clark founded the International Marketplace Coalition, formerly known as the Lafayette Square Area Coalition, and that has made all the difference.
