Mayor Muriel Bowser and her administration’s Office of African Affairs will screen a documentary on the District’s African population tonight in Navy Yard.

The documentary “Diaspora in Dialogue” profiles several Africans who now live and work in the District. In the film, six District residents talk about their heritage and being a member of the African diaspora in D.C.

The screening, which is part of the OAA’s Black History Month celebrations, will be held at the D.C. Commission on Arts and Humanities at 200 I St. SE at 6 p.m. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on the ties between African and African-American communities.

Attendees must have a government ID to enter and are asked to RSVP online.
