1965: Civil Rights at 50 at the Newseum

December 25, 2015 - January 3, 2016

January marks the end of an astounding exhibit exploring the year 1965 and its many iconic civil rights moments, which all left a permanent mark on this nation. The media-focused Newseum uses newspaper clippings and various other social artifacts to explore the relationship between the news and the movement of the 1960’s. The main event looked at here is Bloody Sunday—the attack on peaceful protesters in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965—which served as a catalyst for equal rights protests nationwide.

For more information on the exhibit and the Newseum, check out their website, here.

Temporary Hotel Closure Due to COVID-19

As a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the hospitality industry is experiencing an impact to business that will cause The Graham Georgetown to temporarily suspend hotel operations as of March 27, 2020. This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests. Any guests with questions regarding upcoming reservations are encouraged to contact Hilton Reservations and Customer Care for assistance. We plan to fully restore operations at our hotel by September 15, 2020, and look forward to welcoming our guests and Team Members back as soon as possible. We can’t wait to resume our place in the Georgetown community!
