Humanitini: Beyond Hookah & Injera

June 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Just off U Street, in what we affectionately know as “Little Ethiopia”, one can find the vibrant enclave of restaurants, grocery stores, and mom-and-pop shops. When immigrants arrived in droves in the early 2000’s, the Ethiopian community began to expand beyond this four-block stretch. Their culture has since blossomed in the nation’s capital. For many of us, our first entre into Ethiopian culture has been through hookah and traditional foods. However, in our next Humanitini, we will examine the Ethiopian experience in DC in depth: cultural exchanges, Black/Afro-American identity, generational experiences, and adapting to American life.
