Humanitini: Washington 101, November 21 at Busboys & Poets
(Washington, DC)—How would you explain Washington, D.C. to a newcomer who imagines the city as strictly politicians, national landmarks and cherry blossoms? During our monthly “Humanitini happy hour from 6 to 9 p.m. on November 21, attendees will get a primer on “Washington 101.” The authors of Washington 101: An Introduction to the Nation’s Capital will engage attendees in a discussion on the role of memory, race and politics in shaping DC’s multiple identities.
Learn how the four authors— Laura Daughtery, Matthew N. Green, Maria Mazzenga and Julie Yarwood—share the culture of DC’s 223-year history in a way that all Washingtonians can appreciate. Humanitini will be held at Busboys and Poets (Cullen Room) located at 1025 5th Street NW, DC.
Humanitini: Washington 101 is a complimentary program by Humanities DC. RSVP at washington101.eventbrite.com.
