Join us for a live, virtual journey through history, as Museum docents or curators answer your questions and walk you through a slideshow of objects and imagery via Zoom, an easy-to-use video conferencing platform that requires no special login or membership.


Katharine Meyer Graham never expected to become the president, publisher, and CEO of the Washington Post. But she thrived in that position—and even helped end a war and a corrupt U.S. presidency. Curator Jeanne Gutierrez discusses our current exhibition and delves into a transformative period in Graham’s life, as her devotion to the Post helped her evolve from a self-effacing widow into a decisive media executive.
