Tuesday Talk: A History of Woodley Park
Tuesday, September 20 at 7:00 pm Register Here
Did you know that US Presidents lived in Woodley Park? That enslaved people lived here, though African Americans were prohibited from buying or renting residences? That the US Supreme Court played a role in shaping the Woodley neighborhood? Judy Waxman is the unofficial historian of Woodley Park. In 2005, she led the Woodley Park team to rehabilitate the eight call boxes in the community. In 2015 she became an oral historian and has worked on projects including The DC Collaborative, The Women’s March, the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association’s 50th Anniversary, the Veteran Feminists of America, and the Pioneer Histories Project.
