The Humanities Council of Washington DC, an organization dedicated to sharing local history and culture of neighborhoods throughout the District, is hosting its December Humanitini event East of the River.
Humanitini—”where happy hour meets the humanities”—is a monthly event bringing together local experts and residents for discussion, education, and debate. December’s event features panelists from the Anacostia Coordinating Council, the DC Federation of Civic Associations, and the Eastland Gardens Civic Association, as well as a local scholar of DC anthropology. They’ll be discussing the complex and varied histories of neighborhoods East of the River with an eye towards the future of this vital part of the District.
The December Humanitini event will take place on December 27, 2015, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Uniontown Bar and Grill in Anacostia. Admission is free.
