Bring a beverage of your choice and join us for a virtual Humanitini happy hour event featuring past and present residents and community leaders to share their stories about the neighborhood’s history, contemporary challenges, and hopes for the future.

This event is in conversation with Jenn Low’s on-going project work at the intersection of art, design and public history, entitled, Dear Chinatown, DC, which recognizes the importance of making visible and amplifying community voices often marginalized in conversations around neighborhood change. We will also discuss the broader discourse on cultural erasure, displacement, and gentrification in Washington, D.C. We will start the program with a warm-up writing exercise, followed by a panel discussion, with childhood resident Jack Lee, and longtime community leaders Shirley Woo from the Chinatown Service Center and Ted Gong from the 1882 Foundation. Graphic recorder, Sara Yukimoto-Saltman, will be commissioned to illustrate the themes and key takeaways that emerge from this gathering.
