Set your TiVos, everyone. The Nine Lives of Marion Barry premieres on HBO tonight at 9pm. The 80 minute documentary covers Barry’s career from his start as a civil rights activist in the 1960s through to current day, through the beginnings of Home Rule in DC, to his crushing conviction for crack possession and use, through his resurgence & re-election to the City Council. The documentary does not cover the latest chapter with his girlfriends who were given city money, but as with all good things in movies: there’s plenty of room for a sequel.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
