This summer the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit opened at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History. Coinciding with the opening of the exhibit, The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region held its annual meeting and kicked off the themed series Putting Race on the Table.
On Wednesday, September 14, The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region will continue its Putting Race on the Table series by bringing the topic of race into the community through a community tour, entitled Race and Revitalization. The tour will explore the H Street corridor in Washington, D.C.
In its heyday the H Street NE corridor in the District of Columbia was a bustling neighborhood as well as a destination for food, entertainment, shopping and other services for African-Americans. But in recent years, the demographics of the neighborhood have changed, as new businesses and new residents are taking advantages of the area’s revitalization. Join us on our exploration of H Street and speak with residents and business owners, old and new, to explore whether the revitalization of H Street is creating equitable opportunities for all residents.
The tour begins at 8:30am. The tour is free and open to the public. Click here for complete details and to RSVP.
