Series 16: Anthology of Booty, 2019
Scope and Contents
Anthology of Booty documents the dynamic shifts in D.C. social spaces from the mid-2000s to the present, focusing on nightclubs, bars, dancehalls, and house parties, by gathering first-person oral histories of Anthology of Booty, an all-women DJ collective, and the communities they serve. They illuminate the collective’s strategies for creating unique and welcoming social spaces against the backdrop of changes in the city. It also explores how historical patterns of segregation played out in nightlife spaces based on race, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity. In turn they ask how spaces were considered “safe” or not, and how this has shifted as D.C. has changed.
