This 50-minute documentary chronicles the history of a Southeast DC neighborhood and its residents.

From formerly enslaved people who purchased land here in the 1860s to the rise of Go-Go music in the 1980s— Barry Farm: Community, Land, and Justice in DC tells a story of community, racial segregation, displacement, and resistance.

After the screening there will be a moderated discussion with filmmakers Dr. Sabiyha Prince and Sam George, Q&A, and an opportunity to talk with the DC Oral History Collaborative about local history preservation.

This program is for ages 13+ and is co-sponsored by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH).
