Come learn and connect at this free presentation, discussion and community listening period on race, place and the Mt. Pleasant riots, moderated by Patrick Scallen from Georgetown University's Department of History. This inquiry forms part of his ongoing research into the history of Salvadorans in metropolitan Washington, D.C., and the culmination of a series of Mt. Pleasant oral histories carried out on behalf of the DC Oral History Collaborative (a partnership of the DC Public Library, the Historical Society of Washington, DC and Humanities DC). 

Patrick Scallen is a 13-year Mt. Pleasant resident and a Ph.D. candidate and instructor in the Department of History at Georgetown University. He is currently writing a history of Salvadoran immigrants in the D.C. metropolitan area (1950-2000) for his doctoral dissertation.
