Adams-Morgan Walking Tour with Hola Cultura

Saturday, June 22, 2019, 10:30 a.m.

This hour long walking tour will focus on how the Latino community took shape in Adams Morgan, and how art and activism was often intertwined in the 1970s-1990s, when DC's Latino population was growing rapidly and Adams Morgan was in the epicenter of the community. Registration is required. Drop in spaces may be available the day of the tour.
 
Among the landmarks we'll visit are: former locations of Ontario Theatre, the GALA Hispanic Theatre, and Zodiac Records; and some of the oldest street murals still standing in the District including the 1982 Unity Mural and "Un Pueblo sin murales es un pueblo desmuralizado" ("A people without murals is a demoralized people"), which was painted in the 1970s.
 
The Library is proud to partner with the Smithsonian Institution Anacostia Community Museum to bring their exhibition A Right to the City to neighborhood libraries. This event is a part of the library's collaboration with ACM.
