‘Men of Change’ Exhibition to Open at Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum

The Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum presents from Feb. 1 – May 31 the exhibition, “Men of Change: Taking it to the Streets,” outside on the campus of Ron Brown High School and the Deanwood Community Center in Northeast.

“Men of Change” offers powerful stories of significant African-American men – both known and unknown. It examines how each, in their own way, used inspiration from those before them to take charge of their identity and not be held back by stereotypes and societal barriers of their times.

It’s a moving and uplifting experience featuring bold presentations, fresh literary excerpts and quotes and vibrant stories to highlight these revolutionary men and invite visitors to reflect on their own narratives.

The creative reimaging of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition’s in-gallery show exhibition for outdoor presentation in D.C.’s Ward 7 Deanwood neighborhood will be augmented over its run with pop-up building projections throughout Ward 8 and at Union Market, offering a safer approach to museum engagement in today’s COVID-19 environment.

Original funding support was provided by the Ford Motor Company Fund, which has also supported the local “Taking it to the Streets” installation along with the DC Commission on the Arts and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee. Media sponsorship is provided by The Washington Informer Newspaper.
