Free, drop-in. All ages.
Close out this 50th anniversary year with talks and activities presented by the 1968/2018 Collaborative, a group of organizations and people engaged in programming related to D.C. in 1968. Hear from featured speaker Phil Portlock, a photographer, writer, documentary producer, social justice activist, historian, and native Washingtonian. Throughout the afternoon, consider how the events of 1968 shaped the District and how they will continue to as you engage with staff from the Museum, National Park Service, the Historical Society of Greater Washington, D.C., the Mapping Segregation Project, and others. This Community Day complements the Museum's exhibitions Community Policing in the Nation's Capital: The Pilot District Project, 1968-1973 and a space for us.
