DC Lunar New Year Parade

Celebrate the Year of the Rat with the 1882 Foundation and the Humanities Truck at DC’s Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown. This year’s parade is sponsored by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, an organization devoted to supporting Chinese-Americans and Chinese immigrants in the DC area.

The Humanities Truck will present a portion of the Anacostia Community Museum’s “A Right to the City” exhibit, telling stories of community change and organizing in Chinatown.  We are also partnering with the 1882 Foundation and Jenn Low for her “Project PDA: Love Letters to D.C.’s Chinatown.” Stop by the Truck to create a love letter to Chinatown and share your stories of the neighborhood for our “Mobilizing Memories” initiative.

The 1882 Foundation will also present the “Chinatown Archives” project, a local effort with Humanities DC to collect documents and images about Chinatown.
