Your Community, Your Story: Celebrating Five Decades of the Anacostia Community Museum, 1967-2017
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
For fifty years, the Anacostia Community Museum (ACM) has pushed the boundaries of what museum means. Conversations with neighbors have shaped exhibitions and programs. Collections preserve the stories of everyday people.
Today, with a focus on contemporary urban themes, ACM continues to investigate shared experiences, mutual interests, and agreed-upon goals. Museum activities reach deep into local networks to identify key issues, seek out new ideas, gather diverse voices, and promote conversations that generate social impact.
Your Community, Your Story highlights some of the museums signature projects and demonstrates how ACMs work helps us understand city life and strengthen community bonds.
