I Remember When the National Mall Was Made (streamed live on acrossthefader.org  9/23/2016 10:15-11:15 AM)

On Friday, September 23, 2016 students of Shining Stars Montessori Public Charter School (DCPS) present essays and drawings as responses to people and places of the National Mall. In one essay the student imagines herself reminiscing as the Statue of Freedom on the top of the Capital dome, above the National Mall. Additional essays reflect on National Mall events, people and places such as the AIDS quilt, the 1963 March on Washington, the cherry blossoms, the Smithsonian castle, and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The event is one of many EpicCentering the National Mall events welcoming the new National Museum of African American History and Culture to the National Mall.

New EpicCenter Stories Programs

EpicCenter Stories

Our first and primary goal is to establish a model classrooms in schools and community centers to demonstrate our modules, and begin production of curriculum materials that include: live performances, electronic and face to face instruction, and field trips.

We  have recently begun to develop other programs. The first was Epic Publishing. And more recently  a radio broadcast in Takoma Radio with interviews of musicians writers, and other story focused personalities. The most recent series of programs are called EpicCentering and developed  the DC Public Library.
