Lecture: Sacred Spaces in the Story of D.C.'s Neighborhoods

Elizabeth Laird, executive director, Sacred Spaces Conservancy

D.C.'s religious congregations have historically been at the forefront of the most important causes of the day, including the Civil Rights Movement and care for the poor. Sanctuaries provided a place of welcome for the displaced and new immigrants, fed the hungry, and also provided healthcare. In this talk, Elizabeth Laird, executive director of the Sacred Spaces Conservancy, will share the history and social impact of D.C.'s sacred spaces in the city's neighborhoods.

This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series organized in cooperation with the Albert H. Small Center for National Capital Area Studies. Free; no reservations required.
