Virtual: Race, History, and Rock Creek

The history of our national parks - and Rock Creek Park in particular, as it sits in our nation's capital - encompasses people of all races and walks of life. Rock Creek Park (NPS) and its nonprofit partner Rock Creek Conservancy, have partnered to tell the stories at the intersection of race, history, and the park. This event will examine the lynchings that took place in the region and the legacy of biophobia in communities of color. Speakers will include Sarah Hedlund and Ralph Buglass of Montgomery History; as well as Mickey Fearn, an expert in the field of diversity and equity in parks and recreation. The conversation will be moderated by Kym Elder of the National Park Service. A zoom link will be sent to all registered participants on the day of the event.
