Community Forum: Documenting the Anacostia River
Saturday, July 15 | 11am – 1pm
Join the Anacostia Community Museum to explore the various ways in which DC residents have documented the Anacostia River and its communities and what impact such documentation can have on the health of the river and the neighborhoods along its banks. Discussion will include how the various visions and experiences of individuals can help to create a multi-layered sense of place that is honored by all, the multitude of ways in which documentation can take place, the power created by such efforts, and the importance of youth participation in the placement of their river and communities in the historical record.
