Washington National Cathedral

Founded in 1907, the Cathedral has served as a grand spiritual center where Americans unite to worship and pray, mourn the passing of world leaders, and confront the pressing moral and social issues of the day. Visitors may worship, take a tour of the building, walk through the gardens, see an exhibit or listen to a choir. Every president of the United States, since the cathedral's founding, has attended services or visited the cathedral. The Cathedral will host a free special event We Shall Not Be Moved: Sanctuary, Witness And Covenant A Tribute To Dr. King this Monday, January 16 at 2:00 pm.


Theatre and Conversation: An
Evening of Kafka

Join the Alliance for New Music Theatre at the President Woodrow Wilson House on Wednesday, January 18, for a performance of Franz Kafka's riveting 1917 short story A Report to an Academy. See Kafka's half-ape Rot Peter explore the struggle to be human in a broken, oppressive society. Following the performance, the cast will lead a discussion to further examine the themes presented. The performance features actor Drew Valins, whose ongoing solo project Franz Fragments theatrically probes the work of Franz Kafka. Tickets are $20.

MLK Peace Walk

Across the District and the nation, thousands celebrate the legacy of Dr. King with A Day On and Not a Day Off. This Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Day, January 16, many of DC's residents will participate in the annual MLK Peace Walk and Parade in southeast Washington. Join a thousand Peace Walkers on the two-mile walk along MLK Jr. Avenue, from 2500 MLK Jr. Avenue SE to the R.I.S.E Center at 2730 MLK Jr. Avenue SE. The walk begins at 10:00 am.
