  • Creation: 2020-03 - 2020-05


Archive This Moment D.C. tells the story of daily life in the District during the initial quarantine period of March 25, 2020 to May 28, 2020. Materials were collected from public Instagram posts submitted through the hashtag #archivethismomentdc. The structure of the original social media posts have been recreated as closely as possible. Materials that were posted together have been grouped together in this collection. In addition to social media, creators also submitted materials using a DC Public Library People's Archive webform set up for the project and through email. Content is arranged in chronological order.
