"Remembering YoU" was made possible due to the generosity and support of the Georgetown University Humanities Initiative and HumanitiesDC. We also thank Dr. Joseph McCartin and Georgetown University's Kalmanovitz Institute for Labor and the Working Poor, as well as Dr. Uwe Brandes and Georgetown University's Global Cities Initiative for their additional support. 

Apart from our sponsors, we would like to thank in particular Dr. Maurice Jackson, Professor, Georgetown University, and Rev. Dr. Sandra Butler-Truesdale, without whose guidance, generosity and wisdom this project would never have come into being.
