Name: 2017-2018 Wyatt Guest Lecture Series - "F Street: The Place Beyond the Ridge"
Date: March 14, 2018
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
Join photographer, writer, film documentary producer, social justice activist and native Washingtonian, Phil Portlock, for a screening and conversation of F Street: The Place Beyond the Ridge. This video portrait of downtown D.C.'s historic Main Street looks at the history of F Street, NW, from Third to 15th Street. The filmmaker examines how F Street has held its own for nearly 200 years as the tide of commerce has ebbed and flowed, often leaving in its wake empty streets and vacant buildings. In addition to historic views, the filmmaker photographed a year in the life of F Street from 1980 to 1981. For more information visit umflint.edu/history/2017-18-lecture-series.
