DC History Conference
November 24, 2019
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until November 24, 2019
The 2019 D.C. History Conference explores the theme “Communities and Characters.”
Through panel sessions, posters, workshops, tours, and films, presenters will examine some of the major figures and interesting personalities who have shaped Washington, for better or worse, throughout its history. Some will discuss the complex ways communities have responded to changes in their neighborhoods over time, and how the communities themselves have changed. Presentations will also consider who has a right or power to make decisions for the city’s residents.
The sessions Friday through Sunday are at UDC, but the conference opens the evening of Thursday, Nov. 21 with the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Lecture at the Charles Sumner School Museum & Archives.
