Charles Sumner School and National Postal Museum
This free event, presented at two historic D.C. buildings, features the social power of local music and poetry. In April 2019, the U.S. Postal Service releases its new stamp honoring Marvin Gaye, D.C. native son and international music legend. In celebration, join us for a day of activities, discussion, and performances that explore DCʼs rich music history—its legacies and contemporary resonances.
Co-presented by the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and DC: The Social Power of Music
