Description

To attend this field trip you must register in advance.

On this three-hour walking tour through Adams Morgan and Malcolm X Park, learn how African-Americans, Afro-Latinos, Africans and other Afrodescendants contributed to this DC neighborhood's history while also making transnational connections. We will visit current and former gathering places, black-owned businesses, houses of worship, educational centers and sites of activism, protest and collaboration. Learn about the moments and sites of black solidarity and placemaking, as well as the role of other alliances across differences. We will end with lunch at DC’s first Busboys and Poets café and restaurant, where several black community leaders will join us.

Organizer: Corinna Moebius
