Coming up is a program on African-American work and life in Washington, D.C. - especially in the area around the White House known as President’s Park. 

We’ll hear about the rise of a free black family residing near President’s Park and about first lady Lou Henry Hoover’s invitation to Jessie De Priest, the wife of United States Congressman Oscar De Priest, to a White House Tea Party.

It was the first time an African American was a guest at the White House since Teddy Roosevelt hosted Booker T. Washington nearly thirty years earlier. close
