Free Walking Tour 1/19 – “Slavery and Freedom in a Washington Neighborhood”

January 5, 2009

Rachel and I went on this walk last year and found it fascinating. Among other things, the walk features a discussion of the large African-American cemetery near Walter Peirce Park. The work of local activists and Howard University archeologists to preserve this important sight is worthy of much greater attention.   Check it out!
