In the aftermath of the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, following the burning and destruction, Claven Wood purchased and restored 1351 U Street.

During the restoration, Mr. Wood made the decision to preserve a small portion of the neighboring Republic Theater, a historic venue from U Street's Black Broadway era.

He owned and operated Wood's Auto Repair, between 1982-2002.

Since retiring, Mr. Wood has continued to provided local entrepreneurs with opportunities to realize their dreams on U Street.
