Race, History, and Rock Creek:  Rock Creek Pride

Wednesday, June 28, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm ET (VIRTUAL) 

In celebration of Pride month, join Rock Creek Conservancy and Rock Creek Park for a special panel discussion this June to explore the historic connections between local LGBTQ+ communities and Rock Creek Park. We will share the history of places like P Street Beach, which has been used as a gathering place for the LGBTQ+ community since the 1970s. We will also examine the process of documenting this lesser-known history and the importance of capturing and sharing these stories. Hannah Malvin, founder of PrideOutside, will moderate a discussion with local researchers Dr. Megan Springate, Dr. Jeffery “Free” Harris, and Kai Walthers.
