Yesterday, on a snowy Saturday afternoon, legendary songstress Roberta Flack came back to the Capitol Hill neighborhood Victorian Pub where she performed before becoming famous. She was the honoree at a fire callbox restoration commemorating her talent, her work, her contributions, her legacy and her connection to Mr. Henry’s neighborhood bar a block away.
The callbox is in front of the Capitol Hill United Methodist Church – where the ceremony was held – at 5th and Seward Square, SE.
The restoration was undertaken by the Constitution Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution which hosted the ceremony. A reception for guests followed at Mr. Henry’s.
Ms. Flack was also awarded the DAR Women in American History Award – presented during Women’s History Month to honor women who have made or are making an outstanding contribution to their communities.
