Hattie Sewell Short Film Premiere @ Peirce Mill

October 22, 2021 @ 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Hattie Sewell was an African American woman who ran the teahouse at Peirce Mill exactly 100 years ago. But a prominent neighbor, E.S. Newman, complained that Peirce Mill had become “a rendezvous for colored people, soon developing into a nuisance.” Her contract was terminated in October 1921.

A 30-minute documentary about Sewell will premiere at Peirce Mill in Rock Creek Park on Friday, October 22. Register for the two sessions:
