Title:CANCELLED: Short Film - AfAmerican History of Ft. Reno
Date & Time:Thu Feb 16, 2023
201 S. Washington St.
Event Details:At Fort Reno Park, near Tenleytown, an important chapter in the history of Washington’s D.C.’s Black community is barely visible to the modern-day visitor. Fort Reno was a bustling neighborhood in which men, women, and children lived, died, loved, worked, worshipped, and played. Brian Taylor (author of Fighting for Citizenship [UNC Press, 2020]), Miriam Gusevich (Catholic University) and Martin Paddack (Howard University) will share their work on the history of the Fort Reno neighborhood and their efforts to bring this history to the public. It builds on Brian Taylor’s “On the Fort”: The Fort Reno Community of Washington, D.C., 1861-1951, the official National Park Service Report and benefits from Gusevich’s expertise in urban design and Paddack’s work in the field of architecture.
