Our Real World History students are building their skills as historians today as they study the history of DC neighborhoods at the @smithsonianacm
This morning our members toured @smithsonianacm
’s “A Right to the City” exhibit, led by chief curator Dr. Samir Meghelli. We learned about the history of community participation and leadership in six DC neighborhoods, including Anacostia, Southwest, and Shaw. The exhibit is open until 2020 and very worth a visit! #preservedc
Get out of the rain tomorrow, 9/8, and come see experts discuss the Anacostia and its impact on local community (and check out the new “Capturing the Anacostia River” 📸 exhibit!)
