FReder Douglass Cedar hill.jpg

The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site preserves and interprets Cedar Hill, where Frederick Douglass lived from 1877 until his death in 1895.

The centerpiece of the site is the historic house, which sits on top of a 50-foot hill and eight acres of the original estate. Restored to its 1895 appearance, the house is furnished with original objects that belonged to Frederick Douglass and other household members.

A typical visit lasts about 1.5 hours. Things to do include touring the historic house, looking at exhibits, watching the film, and exploring the grounds.

You must be on a guided tour to get inside the historic house. Because space is limited, reservations are strongly encouraged, even if you are visiting on your own. If you are visiting with a group of more than ten, reservations are required.

A_Right_to_the_City.png

After a half-century of population decline and disinvestment, Washington, D.C., and similar urban centers around the country have been witnessing a “return to the city,” with rapidly growing populations, rising rents and home prices, but also deepening inequality. A Right to the City explores the history of neighborhood change in the nation’s capital, and its rich history of neighborhood organizing and civic engagement that transformed the city in the face of tremendous odds. With a focus on a diverse range of neighborhoods across the city, the exhibition tells the story of how ordinary Washingtonians have helped shape and reshape their neighborhoods in extraordinary ways: through the fight for quality public education, for healthy and green communities, for equitable transit and equitable development, and for a genuinely democratic approach to city planning.

All The Way Live Tuesday featuring Prowess The Testament

Hot off the heels of a hugely successful debut, Anacostia Arts Center proudly presents another FREE musical season of ALL THE WAY LIVE TUESDAYS! With a varied line up of hip-hop, R&B, funk, soul and more, this series exemplifies the vibrant creative economy of DMV talent.

These artistic and diplomatic roots cultivated her natural gifts as a performer, opening for legends like the Wu Tang Clan, KRS-One, The Mars Volta, Citizen Cope and Pharoahe Monch. Prowess’ specialty of crafting lush imagery, articulating a raw yet honest critique as a credo led to the suffix: The Testament.
