04.20.19 Washington, DC: Make Me Wanna Holler: Exploring DC’s Music
Legacy presented the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives. 1201 17th St. NW DC. 10a-3p. Free!

This event is produced in conjunction with the Charles Sumner Museum and Archives’ National Poetry Month Open House, Chocolate City Rocks, the Anacostia Community Museum’s Right to the City exhibition, the National Postal Museum’s celebration of the US Postal Service’s new Marvin Gaye stamp, and DC: The Social Power of Music presented by the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
