Event Details

Join HumanitiesDC in celebrating our city from an international, national, local, and hyperlocal dimension, focusing this year on the stories that shaped 1968. The world changed in 1968 through storytelling, often in music, advocating for change in our neighborhoods and around the world. This special event celebrates the stories and hopes of that pivotal year, as history comes to life!

Enjoy food, music and the company of our DC arts & humanities community as the legendary Captain Fly of The Intruders steers our journey through the unique experiences that defined this critical moment in our city.
