SPS 2018: Saturday at SPS (Eastern Market and the Newseum)

Many St. Albans School of Public Service students are interested in someday returning to Washington, D.C., whether for college or work.  We enjoy giving the SPS students a closer look at Washington and the surrounding areas through our weekend excursions.  Today, SPS '18 began the day with a visit to Eastern Market, a food/arts/farmers market on Capitol Hill. 

After the visit to Eastern Market and a chance to browse bookstores, crafts stands, and eat brunch, it was off to one of the best museums in D.C., the Newseum.  The Newseum highlights interactive exhibits celebrating the First Amendment and the role of a free press in the United States and abroad.  Exhibits include segments of the Berlin Wall and a photojournalism display of seven decades of photographs of the year.
