From the Adams Morgan Day website: “For over 40 years, Adams Morgan Day has been a family-friendly celebration with music, art and activities for all ages. Adams Morgan Day is planned entirely by volunteers, and as Washington, DC’s longest running neighborhood festival, we welcome residents and visitors alike to meet our neighborhood businesses, artists, and service organizations.
Although we were thrilled to bring you the first-ever all-virtual Adams Morgan Day last September, we are elated to be coming back with certain in-person activities and vendors for this year’s festival on Sunday, September 12, 2021.”
Find the Humanities Truck and share your memories of Adams Morgan with us. We will also be featuring Nancy Shia’s photo essay/exhibition “Adams Morgan, Once and Now: Human Need or Developers Greed?”. Utilizing 45 years of photo documentation regarding the neighborhood of Adams Morgan in Washington, DC, the project explores themes of gentrification, human need, and community change over time.
