COMMUNITY HERITAGE SHOWCASE PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: Dap is a Love Language, presented by Rhonda Henderson

Do you know your love language? For many of us, it’s the act of giving dap, a Black man’s most nuanced and telling gesture, and a subtle yet powerful form of cultural communication. Through interviews and photography, this project explores the meaning of the gesture in three different DC communities—Congress Heights (SE), Stronghold (NE) and Park View (NW).

For more than 40 years, HumanitiesDC has served as a hub for cultural preservation, storytelling, partnership, and celebration. So far this year, we launched educational programs on documentary-making, explored critical topics like the intersection of race and environmental injustice, and built platforms to celebrate DC history at the DC History Conference and the Home Rule Music Festival. Whether you are a new or old friend, we invite you to join us and experience the wide range of community programs and resources we offer. You’ll be invited to our upcoming Open House at our new office in Adams Morgan. Until then, we hope you'll consider investing in HumanitiesDC as we work to inspire, engage, and power up the humanities across the district.

THE DISCOVERY SUMMIT AND SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS CEREMONY

TIME & LOCATION

Dec 10, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST

Cleveland Park Library, 3310 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008, USA

ABOUT THE EVENT

Each year since 2019, Esther Productions Inc. has presented a unique scholarship essay contest that invites young ladies aged 13 through 18 to submit essays that tell their stories about growing up without their fathers and building their resilience as they face that challenge. A group of accomplished artists, educators, clinicians, business and civic leaders serve as judges. Cash prizes ranging from $1500 to $500 are given to the top winners during the Discovery Summit and Scholarship Awards Ceremony.

This year, the event is presented in cooperation with The Black Student Fund. The summit will include workshop presentations by therapists, coaches and healing artists that focus on providing greater understanding of the impact of father absence through the game charade, developing a robust self-care program, choreographing movements that minimize physical pain while allowing young ladies the opportunity to realize self-actualization and empowerment.

Thank you

We're excited to welcome The Dap Project!

The Dap Project brings its curiosity about the Black man’s nuanced gesture to the Anacostia Arts Center in a multi-media exhibit that, through photo and interview, appreciates the literal coming together of hands and the metaphorical extension of love for community.
“Dap is a Love Language” invites viewers to appreciate the familiar greeting, and consider how, just like we do, dap exists in multitudes.
Dap abounds in Chocolate City. We appreciate dap in three specific neighborhoods: Congress Heights, Parkview, and Stronghold (with a couple guest appearances by Anacostia and Edgewood). In these communities, we engage directly with Black people who shape and are shaped by these spaces: the barber shop, art galleries, playgrounds, and on the corners.

The Dap Project includes co-creators Rhonda Henderson and Aaron Stallworth. Photographers for this project are Joseph Edwards and Edward Underwood. This project is supported by a Community Heritage grant from Humanities DC.

Greetings,

Hope all is well with you. Can you please feel free to share the below information along with a copy of the flyer about the workshop with your students, parents, teachers, and guests who visit your organization, church, community center and schools?

Everyone, even teen girls-- or maybe especially teen girls--have stories to tell. Esther Productions Inc. and The Black Student Fund, nonprofit organizations based in Washington, DC began their four week writing institute on October 1, 2022 and it is designed to help each participant discover her inner story while learning how to present it using the personal essay. It continues on October 15, 2022 and ends on October 22, 2022 at the Park Hyatt Hotel located at 1201 24th St NW in Washington, DC from 10:30am - 12noon.

Award-winning journalist and author jonetta rose barras will lead the workshop. She has expertly used the art of personal essay to take readers inside her world, hoping to help them understand and assess important local and national issues. Her writings have appeared in the Washington Post, the Washington City Paper, the Washington Examiner, Essence Magazine and the New Republic. She has written three nonfiction books and two collections of poetry. Her fiction and essays have appeared in numerous anthologies and journals.

“The personal essay is not just a high school writing assignment or one more item for a college application. When executed with thoughtfulness, skill and passion, it can be a powerful work of literary art,” says barras, citing the works of Joan Didion, James Baldwin, Annie Dillard and Virginia Woolf as classic examples. More contemporary examples might include Mindy Kaling and Zadie Smith.

Participants in the INSIDE JOB: The Art of Personal Essay Writing may not be on the best-seller list yet, but the stories they tell can be just as compelling and engaging. No one will know for certain until they craft that first sentence, the first paragraph, the first essay.

INSIDE JOB: The Art of Personal Essay Writing is free, but registration is required, and seating is limited. (The workshops are being presented by Esther Productions Inc and The Black Student Fund)
