Humanitini: Reimagining DC in 1968
January 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
1968 was a pivotal year for Washington, DC and the nation. News of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. spread rapidly through the city, and violence was not far behind. What is often lost in this conversation is the fundamental ways in which residents’ perceptions changed. Perceptions about public safety, perceptions about race relations, and perceptions about the government’s ability to affect change transformed.
In partnership with dc1968’s Marya McQuirter and the American Historical Association during their annual meeting, this month’s Humanitini will discuss the ways the events of April, 1968 brought about a simultaneous sense of loss and impulse for grassroots community organizing.
