Hop on a Sunday morning train to take a curator-led tour of two exhibits at the National Building Museum, which will be of particular relevance to Reverberations participants. After the tours, there will be time for Q&A.
  • Evicted examines the causes and impacts of the eviction crisis in America. A collaboration with Matthew Desmond, Professor of Sociology at Princeton University, a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, and best-selling author, Evicted brings visitors into the world of low-income renter eviction.
  • Community Policing in the Nation’s Capital commemorates the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and D.C.’s subsequent unrest, by exploring Washington, D.C.’s brief experiment in community policing, the Pilot District Project. The show displays never-before-seen posters, maps, and other ephemera from the federally-funded policing program.More information about the National Building Museum and its exhibitions here: www.nbm.org
