Giving Voice to Marietta  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Kenhill Center #101, 2614 Kenhill Dr., Bowie, MD 20715
Please join us to learn the stories of enslaved persons, indentured servants, and wage earners who lived and worked at Marietta House.
Dr. Julie Rose, Historic House Manager of Marietta Historic House Museum in Glenn Dale, will inform us about the museum’s major reinterpretation effort called the Giving Voice Initiative, part of their pursuit for social justice education.  We will learn of their efforts to uncover the stories of the people who lived and worked at the historical site to find stories that help represent the despair and fortitude of past and present communities.
