Event Details

In partnership with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum hosts a full day of discussions on race, immigration, gentrification, education, museums, and community in the Washington D.C. metro area, organized by Dr. Ariana A. Curtis.

The program references the museum’s 1994 landmark exhibition Black Mosaic, a multicultural, multilingual exhibition which examined race, nationality, and ethnicity of black immigrants in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

20 years have passed since the Black Mosaic exhibition, and in that time both the local and national contexts have changed. Formerly predominately “Black” cities, like Washington, D.C., are changing in demographic composition. Immigration is a hotly debated national issue. Latinos have come to outnumber African-Americans as the largest minority in the United States. Native-born Black populations are declining while African immigrant populations have hit an all-time high.

Join us for a full day of discussions about our Washington, D.C. metropolitan community!

Organizer

Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum (ACM)

The mission of the Anacostia Community Museum (ACM) is to: challenge perceptions, broaden perspectives, generate new knowledge, and deepen understanding about the ever-changing concepts and realities of 'community.'

ACM is committed to:

  • providing the catalysts for critical thought about issues that impact society;
  • convening stakeholders and collaborators around shared community issues; and
  • employing cutting-edge approaches in museology and community outreach

We believe that active citizen participation in the documentation and use of cultural and historic assets is a powerful instrument in creating and maintaining a sense of community and civic responsibility.

The museum's work is achieved through development of museum collections, engaging exhibitions, research and documentation that examine the development of communities, and through diverse community and educational programming.
