i am ashamed to say i have never been to malcolm x park (as it’s officially known by locals, it’s called meridian hill park by the national park association) to witness the drum circle. it’s something i’ve always said i’d do, but i’ve never made it out there.
being a native of the washington, dc area…fo’ shame!!!
but this very awesome video i found recently by vita foto creation has me really wanting to go and check it out.
if you’re not familiar, the drum circle started back in the 1950s and is held every sunday from 3pm to 9pm during warm weather months. the park is located in columbia heights and is bordered by 15th, 16th, w, and euclid streets in nw.
