Memorial Day Weekend Co-Sponsored Event: Washington, DC

May 27, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm

The Shenandoah Valley Chapter of Coming to the Table is co-sponsor, with the Corhaven Graveyard Book Club:

WALK THE D.C. KIDNAPPING ROUTE of Solomon Northup, a free African American kidnapped into twelve years of slavery before the American Civil War.

Join the Corhaven Graveyard Book Club on Saturday, May 27th, at 9:45 a.m. as they gather outside the Newseum in Washington, DC. Along the route, you’ll hear excerpts from Twelve Years a Slave, and end the experience by visiting the U Street African American Civil War Memorial, eating lunch at Ben’s Chili Bowl, and touring the “1967: Civil Rights at 50” exhibit at the Newseum. Any costs accrued are your own.

The only costs are for parking/metro, lunch, and a ticket into the Newseum – if you want to do that. Group tickets for the Newseum are $7 cheaper than the normal rate ($18 adults / $12 children 7-18 / free 6 & under). Carpooling is available from the Front Royal area – just let Sarah Korhrs (senkohrs at gmail dot com) know of your interest.
