Event description

Join the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in our 200 I St Gallery for a reception to celebrate our latest exhibition, Legacy: Civil Rights at 60. This juried exhibition commemorates the 60th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which aimed to prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
