Ten Strong:Women of Barry Farm-Hillsdale in Anacostia
Through the Our Girls, Our World webinar series, we seek to explore the experiences that shape our students' lives outside their classrooms at WSG.
In honor of Women's History Month, WSG presents Ten Strong: Women of Barry Farm-Hillsdale in Anacostia, presented by Alcione M. Amos, currently a Museum Curator at Smithsonian Institution Anacostia Community Museum. From the very beginning, the female community of Barry Farm-Hillsdale was unique. Forty-six women bought lots in the community between 1867 and 1870 when women were not supposed to own property. Over the decades, other women became leaders within the community or outside it. This presentation will tell the history of ten of them.
Join us to learn more about the important contributions of these women to the development of the neighborhoods where WSG has made its home for nearly 25 years.
