Washington, DC remembers the 50th anniversary of the 1968 civil uprising, which took place between April 4 and 8. Downtown DC, Logan Circle, Capitol Hill, Shaw, and Columbia Heights were at the center of the civic uprisings sparked by anger over Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination and longstanding discrimination. Twelve people died and hundreds of businesses were decimated. The military, more than 13,000 strong, arrived in an attempt to contain the crowds. Their presence became an indelible part of the city’s history.

The links below are just some of the interesting ways local and national publications are recognizing the anniversary.

Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Washington, DC is a growing city. From sports and entertainment to museums and restaurants, we are a city that has something for everyone—a place where you can walk to work or take the train, hike through Rock Creek Park or ride your bike along the waterfront. We’re a leader in tech and innovation. A city where aspiring entrepreneurs can start and grow small and local businesses.

As DC grows, my Administration is focused on ensuring all residents, in every neighborhood, get a fair shot and an opportunity to participate in our city’s prosperity. And we’re always looking for more people to join us in this work.

Want to learn more about joining our team? On Monday, October 22, join me at my Administration’s Fall 2018 Resume Raiser. Meet members of my team and learn more about volunteer and career opportunities at DC Government. Learn more and RSVP HERE.

No job or idea is too big or too small for DC Government—we function as a city, a state, and a county. From fixing potholes to fighting for statehood, we do it all. Join us.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser
