DC Community Heritage Project Showcase: Thursday, December 6

Preserving Trinidad Showcase_Dec 2012

As announced in July, board member Bernadine Okoro has been working on the TNA-sponsored short documentary “Preserving Trinidad: Looking Through the Window of the Past; Opening the Door to the Future.” The project was one of the 2012 DC Community Heritage Project grant recipients, and the DC Community Heritage Project is a program of the Humanities Council of Washington, DC.

Please join us at the DC Community Heritage Project Showcase on Thursday, December 6, 6:30-8:30 pm, at All Souls Church at 1500 Harvard St. NW. The event is free and simply requires an RSVP.

Be on the look out for the documentary’s premiere in early 2013!

“Preserving Trinidad:  Looking Through the Window of the Past; Opening the Door to the Future.”

The Trinidad neighborhood is located in the northeast quadrant of Washington, DC.  Primarily residential, it is bounded by Mt. Olivet Road, West Virginia Avenue, Florida Avenue, and Bladensburg Road. Though not officially designated a historic neighborhood, Trinidad was once home to a number of historically significant attractions, including the Washington Brick Machine Company, the American League Park, and the Florida Theatre. “Preserving Trinidad: Looking Through the Window of the Past; Opening the Door to the Future” will explore Trinidad’s past, including its landscape and architecture. The documentary component will focus on stories of significant historical events told through the eyes of the residents of Trinidad.
