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: 5:45-7:15pm: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hattie-sewell-film-premiere-screening-1-tickets-185915176297 7:30-9:00pm: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hattie-sewell-film-premiere-screening-2-tickets-189702313727 More information: https://www.friendsofpeircemill.org/event/hattie-sewell-film-premiere/
