The White House Historical Association invites you to the inaugural edition of our 2020 lecture series White House History with David Rubenstein: Slavery in the President’s Neighborhood.

Many people think of the White House as a symbol of democracy, but it also embodies America’s complicated past and the paradoxical relationship between slavery and freedom in the nation’s capital. The Slavery in the President’s Neighborhood program with Dr. Lonnie G. Bunch III will share the stories of the enslaved and free African Americans who built, lived, and worked at the White House, as well as the surrounding homes on Lafayette Park.

This event is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP in order to attend.

Doors open at 6:00pm. Program begins at 6:30 pm.
