Woman’s Suffrage: Personal Expression as Political Action

Saturday, March 21, 2020

The year 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed all American women the right to vote. Our workshop considers the relationship between Congress and the suffragists, highlighting the ways that women gained social and political support through fashion, art and media. Participating teachers will explore how individual acts of personal expression inspired a political movement.

Uncovering the Hidden and Lost
Exploring Historic Neighborhoods using Primary Sources

Saturday, April 6, 2019

Streets, businesses and houses began to radiate out from Capitol Hill, and the landscape began to change. In today’s bustling, modern D.C., it can be difficult to find glimpses of original Capitol Hill features.
