"Brookland Fight the Freeway" Presentation

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 2 p.m.

Please come to see and learn about the “A Right to the City: Brookland - Fight the Freeways” exhibition currently at the Woodridge Neighborhood Library. Jeremiah Montague, Jr, a local historian, will deliver a special presentation on this proposed Freeway Project and the impact it could have had on what we know as the Brookland neighborhood today. Without the longer-term positive influences of the community, the outcome of the Brookland neighborhood and surrounding areas would have been very different. Participate in the discussion and share your stories.

This program is being hosted by the Friends of the Woodridge Library and the Library Staff. Preserving local history and community stories is one of the goals of the DC Public Library.
