Sidwell Friends School (Main Gym)
Take a self-guided tour in search of Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, the only woman represented inside Contemplation Court at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. She was a free Black woman born in the slave state of Maryland who traveled often as an activist involved in the abolition, suffrage, and temperance movements. Her quote, “I ask no monument, proud and high, to arrest the gaze of the passers-by; All that my yearning spirit craves, Is bury me not in a land of slaves.”
Tickets available exclusively for TOHO Members only. Limited availability, first come, first serve. Must reserve a ticket. Two tickets per one member.
