DC Humanities Council presents “Neighborhood Knowledge: Bloomingdale” Tues. at Big Bear

2

From an email:

“On Tuesday 12/16, we shine the spotlight on Bloomingdale, past and present. The event takes place at Big Bear Cafe (1700 First Street NW), from 6.30-8.30pm.

Here’s the twist: Rather than tracing its evolution through percentages about rising rents and new businesses, we’ll focus on community voices. In addition to our amazing panelists (listed below), we’re inviting people to share their photos, posters, stories, little-known facts, etc — anything that addresses the evolution of Bloomingdale’s urban space and community.

We’re interested in the architecture, stories, traditions, and most of all, the multiple facets of lived experience that make up the neighborhood’s history. From childhood to churches, parks to parades, street art to community relations, we welcome an array of viewpoints about urban transformation. Photos (and stories) can be uploaded to the Council’s blog (http://hcwdc.blogspot.com/) or brought in that evening.

Natalie Hopkinson, Ph.D, author of Go-Go Live Ph.D, author of Go-Go Live
Saaret Yoseph, multimedia storyteller; director/producer of The Red Line D.C. Project
Scott Roberts, community activist and blogger of Bloomingdale
Autumn Saxon-Ross, Program Director, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
Stuart Davenport, owner and manager of Big Bear Café”

There’s a reason Well-Paid Maids has hundreds of positive reviews from happy clients.

The home cleaning company pays cleaners — who are W-2 employees — a living wage starting at $24 an hour. Plus, cleaners are offered benefits, including insurance, 24 paid days off a year, 100% employer-paid commuting costs and more.

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, said it best: “People deserve their work to be respected and recognized. When that happens, you love what you do, and you create the best results.”
