About the D.C. History Conference
The annual D.C. History Conference is a collaboration between the DC History Center, DC Public Library, and the DC Historic Preservation Office. Since 1973, the mission of the conference has been to provide a friendly and rigorous forum for discussing and promoting original research about the history of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
The 2019 D.C. History Conference explores the theme “Communities and Characters.” Through panel sessions, posters, workshops, tours, and films, presenters will examine some of the major figures and interesting personalities who have shaped Washington, for better or worse, throughout its history. Some will discuss the complex ways communities have responded to changes in their neighborhoods over time, and how the communities themselves have changed. Presentations will also consider who has a right or power to make decisions for the city’s residents.
Remember to secure your ticket for the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Lecture on Thursday, November 21, 2019, at the Charles Sumner School Museum & Archives. Seating is limited.
