Video seem familiar? It’s an update of the coverage we provided the day after the exhibit in April 2019, one of the many stories you requested we bring back after BZ/MP’s re-launch and site redesign. We took the opportunity to make a few tweaks to the video and hope you enjoy re-acquainting yourself with the powerful “A Right to the City” all over again.
Join BZ/MP TV DC as we attend the opening of the ambitious and thought-provoking new exhibit “A Right to the City,” at the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum in this dynamic BZ/MP TV info short.
The new exhibition, which will call the ACM home for the next two years, explores the profound question “Who has a right to the city?” through the stories of six iconic Washington D.C. neighborhoods–Adams Morgan, Anacostia, Brookland, Chinatown, Shaw, and Southwest–over more than five decades.
The stories of change, civic engagement, upheaval and more explore how ordinary citizens have shaped and continue to reshape the trajectory of our nation’s capital and were curated by Samir Meghelli, Ph.D. (featured in this video) and the team at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum.
