Anacostia Community Museum

Housed in an unprepossessing red-brick building at the top of a hill in the District’s historically black Anacostia neighborhood, this modest museum hosts changing thematic exhibitions spotlighting history, culture and creative expression from an African-American perspective. Exhibits include the 19th-century diary of one-time slave Adam Francis Plummer, who wrote of his foiled plan to escape on the Underground Railroad, and a section on black baseball in segregated DC.
