Edward Ingebretsen: Enslaved Washington DC (1790–2023)
Part Two – In-Person Tour
Sunday, April 23
3:00-4:30 PM

Meeting Point: Renwick GatesEnid A Haupt Garden, 1050 Independence Ave SW, Washington DC 20560. 

Transportation: The Smithsonian Metro stop is a hundred yards from the meeting point so using Metro is most convenient. The station has two exits. Leave through the 12th St & Independence Ave exit. Walk towards Independence Ave SW. There is limited parking in that area.


This tour is the second of a two-part "Talk & Tour" series, led by Ed Ingebretsen. Participants will take a "walking pilgrimage" in DC, where he shares the history of the district and its founding as a slave market. In Part one, a virtual talk on March 30, Ed Ingebretsen examined the history of enslavement in the original Federal City and the fact that the District of Columbia was designed as an enclave of slaver power in 1790.

Registration is limited to the first 40 people that sign up or 8:00 AM on Friday, April 21, whichever comes first. There is no charge for this event. In the event of questionable weather, please check your email for an update from Ed Ingebretsen. To contact Ed with any questions, please email [email protected].

Edward Ingebretsen holds advanced degrees in theology, philosophy and education, and a PhD from Duke University in American literature and culture. He has lived in DC since he began teaching at Georgetown University in 1986 where he is currently Professor Emeritus.
