"A Right to The City" Conversation Series with Busboys and Poets
Once a vibrant Chinese immigrant neighborhood, Washington, DC’s Chinatown is today a bustling business and entertainment district with only about 300 remaining Chinese American residents. While Chinatown first formed in the late 19th century on Pennsylvania Avenue NW within a few blocks of the Capitol, it was displaced for the construction of federal and municipal buildings around 1930. After relocating to near 7th and H Streets NW, a new Chinatown grew, but faced continued challenges from major development projects and suburbanization in the decades that followed.
Join us for a lively discussion of the past and future of DC’s Chinatown: where we’ve been, where we’re going.
This program is funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, and in partnership with Busboys and Poets
