Anacostia Community Museum curator and author Alcione M. Amos will recount the lives of 10 women from the historic African American settlement of Barry Farm/Hillsdale in Southeast Washington, DC. Established in 1867 by the Freedmen’s Bureau, the community counted 47 women among its first settlers. Ms. Amos will tell the life stories of inspiring women such as Georgiana Rose Simpson, the second African American woman to receive a PhD, and Winnie Banks, who as an enslaved young girl was separated from her parents. This program will be at the Anacostia Neighborhood Library, 1800 Good Hope Rd SE, Washington, DC. Image courtesy Anacostia Community Museum.
