“It’s A Small World After All” at Petworth Neighborhood Library

The Humanities Truck traveled to the Petworth Neighborhood Library for the second event in “It’s A Small World After All,” a series hosted by the Petworth branch of the DC Public Library that explores D.C. history, public art and storytelling. On November 9, 2019, community historian Peter Stebbins discussed the Art Wraps on Historic Georgia Avenue, ties to the Lebanese, African and Caribbean diaspora, and community-based archiving. The Humanities Truck team gathered oral histories of Petworth community members about the neighborhood’s history and change over time as part of the “Mobilizing Memories” initiative.
