Colbert King Remembers Foggy Bottom

Wednesday, February 16 at 1:00 pm

Join Foggy Bottom West End Village for an exciting upcoming program as the Washington Post columnist Colbert I. “Colby” King reminisces about Foggy Bottom.

Mr. King was born at Columbia Hospital for Women and lived in a house that is now the site of the West End Library. In 2003, Mr. King won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary “for his against-the-grain columns that speak to people in power with ferocity and wisdom." He has written about growing up in the 1940s and 1950s in the predominantly African American Foggy Bottom/West End neighborhood and will share his reminiscences of those times.
