2023 Buchanan Award Recipient
The DC Legacy Project: Barry Farm-Hillsdale, featuring the documentary Barry Farm: Community, Land, and Justice in Washington, DC.
The DC Legacy Project is an ongoing, team effort that has worked to preserve and transform the remaining buildings and landscape on the Barry Farm site that represent a Black community that existed and had an active role in social justice since 1867. This team effort achieved landmark status for the five buildings, and the documentary film has served as a means of engagement and uplift. The documentary was developed in partnership with the Bertelsmann Foundation.
Attendees at the VAF conference in Plymouth were given an opportunity to view the full documentary.
