A Conversation with Descendants of a Displaced Black Community

June 7, 7 pm: Chevy Chase DC in the Arc of American History Register Now – Virtual Webinar

Join Historic Chevy Chase DC and the ANC 3/4G Committee on Race and Social Equity for a virtual webinar to hear directly from descendants of Black landowners who were displaced from Chevy Chase DC nearly a century ago. The program, titled "A Conversation with a Displaced Black Community: Chevy Chase DC in the Arc of American History," is free and will feature a special pre-recorded session between descendants and the Rev. William H. Lamar IV, pastor of Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC.

HCCDC's Charles Cadwell, a former ANC commissioner, will moderate a question-and-answer session at the end between the audience, the descendants, and the ANC 3/4G commissioners.

The program is an important part of a partnership between HCCDC and the University of the District of Columbia to explore multi-generational effects of Black land loss. HCCDC has been working with -- and learning from -- descendants of its African American neighbors on Broad Branch Road who were driven from their homes in the 1920s so a whites-only school and park could be built.
