I Mask 4 DC


During this pandemic there is a lot we don’t know, some things we do know and plenty of misinformation. So, we asked the community for help! In June, the Black Coalition Against Covid-19 in partnership with THEARC Theater, Howard University’s Department of Theatre Arts, The Washington Informer Newspaper, WHUR and WPFW radio stations encouraged the community to do their research, and reach out to us through social media to help educate us on proper mask usage during the Pandemic.


On June 16th, the finalist of the #iMask4DC Competition presented their work in a live stream, showcasing not only their unique talents, but also their dedication to educate and protect their communities.
