Why yes I did hear WAMU's piece on Shaw history

When listening to WAMU's piece on Shaw, I was glad to hear someone acknowledge the name comes from the area's urban renewal and not directly from the name of Col. Shaw. Not so happy with the assertion that the boundaries stopped at New Jersey Ave. With Home Rule, which brought forth the Wards, Truxton Circle got politically cut off from the rest of Shaw. Culturally, we have Dunbar so as far as I'm concern we are still in Shaw.
