CANCELLED: Anacostia Community Museum Tour and Discussion

April 19, 2020 @ 12:45 pm – 2:45 pm
Anacostia Community Museum
1901 Fort Place SE
DC 20020

Come out to learn more about race, advocacy, democracy, and the complex and interesting history of six DC neighborhoods: Adams Morgan, Anacostia, Brookland, Chinatown, Shaw, and Southwest.

Experience a guided tour of the Anacostia Community Museum’s current exhibit, A Right to the City. The exhibit explores more than five decades of neighborhood change in the nation’s capital as well as the rich history of organizing and civic engagement that accompanied it. The exhibition tells the story of how ordinary Washingtonians have helped shape and reshape their neighborhoods in extraordinary ways: through the fight for quality public education, for healthy and green communities, for equitable development and transit, and for a genuinely democratic approach to city planning.

Afterwards, join us for a short discussion about your own neighborhood and its changing landscape.

In partnership with Operation Understanding DC, Tzedek DC, and Jews United for Justice (JUFJ).
