Lunar New Year at D.C.'s Chinatown

The 1882 Foundation and the Humanities Truck celebrated the Year of the Rat at DC’s Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown on January 26, 2020. This year’s parade was sponsored by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, an organization devoted to supporting Chinese-Americans and Chinese immigrants in the DC area. The Humanities Truck presented a portion of the Anacostia Community Museum’s “A Right to the City” exhibit, telling stories of community change and organizing in Chinatown.

We also partnered with the 1882 Foundation and Jenn Low for her “Project PDA: Love Letters to D.C.’s Chinatown.” Visitors stopped by the Truck to create a love letter to Chinatown and shared their stories of the neighborhood for our “Mobilizing Memories” initiative.
