The Week Ahead…& Some Photos from the Past Week

The House of Representatives, voted on Friday, June 28, to pass Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton’s bill, HR 51, the DC Statehood Bill. The tally was 232 – 180 with 19 not voting. Rep. Collin Peterson Democrat of Minnesota, joined Republicans in voting no.

Muriel Bowser commissioned #MuralsDC51, a project comprised of local artists, to create 51 statehood, Black history, and social justice themed murals across all eight wards.  This one on lower 8th Street, SE, has grown since last Sunday’s The Week Ahead.  See:  @#muralsdc51 (The second panel from the left begs interpretation.)

On Thursday evening, the presence of 9 television news crews in Lincoln Park lent an air of expectation that demonstrators might attempt to topple the Emancipation Memorial. The demonstration which materialized did not take that turn…

…but U.S. Park Police staged had the cavalry next to the Supreme Court in case it did.

The Eastern Market arts and craft vendors returned to the 200 Block of 7th Street on Saturday…

…and Michael Berman’s Diverse Market’s Flea Market at Eastern Market returned to the 300 block of 7th Street on Sunday.
