Event description

Description

DCPS Office of Family and Public Engagement, in collaboration with the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Anacostia Community Museum, invite students, parents, staff and community to a facilitated discussion exploring, “What does it mean to be the other?”

A small collection of DCPS student photography and selected passages from the play District Merchants will serve as a catalyst for conversation. District Merchants by Aaron Posner, an adaptation of Merchants of Venice, set in post-Civil War DC juxtaposes the experience of two DC merchants: a newly emancipated black man and an immigrant Jew. The play explores themes regarding gender, race, religion, and power.The evening will end with a call for student photography entries to be featured in a Spring DCPS Student Exhibition at the Anacostia Community Museum. Event is free but space is limited.
