Reminder: Humanities Council Program — Does Preserving History Help Build Community?

dcchplogowhiteHere’s a program I’m participating in tonight that might be of interest (and which I’ve previously posted about) — a panel discussion about the role of preserving history in maintaining community ties. All in all, it promises to be a good discussion.

Details from an email sent out by the Humanities Council:

Who: Local real estate professionals, community historians, and government officials will discuss the importance of historical preservation and knowledge in relation to a modern sense of community.

Joining us will be:

  • Michael Marshall, Principal, Marshall Moya Designs
  • Rosalynn Hughey, Deputy Director, Citywide and Neighborhood Planning for the DC Office of Planning
  • Kent Boese, Commissioner and Project Director of ANC, Park View Walking Tour
  • Bernadine Okoro, Film Producer,  Preserving Trinidad Documentary
  • Graylin Presbury, President and Project Director of Fairlawn Civic Association, Fairlawn Community History Brochure.

This panel will be moderated by Jane Freundel Levey, Director of Heritage and Community Programs, Cultural Tourism DC.

What: Because of the high cost of living and residential displacement, there is a growing rift between long-time residents and more recent arrivals. The annual summer DC Community Heritage Project symposium will address how residents’ knowledge of D.C.’s history can establish a sense of community.

When: Tuesday June 25, 2013 from 6:30-8:30

Where: 1840 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C.  20009 (Three blocks from the U Street Metro Station)

RSVP today for this FREE opportunity at For more information, please call (202) 387-8391, or emailing info (at) wdchumanities (dot) org.
