The Mansion on O & O Street Museum

The Mansion on O & O Street Museum Our mission is to empower people to do what they love — dare to be different — and have fun. We inspire creativity, diversity, and imagination through the fusion of the arts, science, and sports.
The creative process comes in many forms: from the wrinkles on your grandmother’s face to a refugee’s smile in Darfur. Every story has a beautiful lining that we can all learn from, and share with each other. We seek to reshape how people see and connect with the beauty of the world around them, starting from their power, within.Together we can achieve things beyond what we know.

Did you know that when Mrs. Parks' mother could no longer afford her daughter's education that she got a "scholarship?"

This meant she cleaned the schoolhouse to pay for her education.

Thank you for helping to spread Mrs. Parks' message of unity + love. Take the #HoldMyHandChallenge and post your photos holding hands 💖

Today is the birthday of Mrs. Rosa Parks.

“The Hold My Hand Challenge” is the creation of RRPI and H.H. Leonards, Founder of @omansion, who opened The Mansion February 14, 1980 and who provided a home-away-from-home for Mrs. Parks. 🔥

Holding hands is something Mrs. Parks did to inspire those she met. She said, “It’s a simple, non-threatening gesture that holds immense opportunity to ignite change and to demonstrate how we should all focus on what we have in common with each other. When you hold hands, there is no fear.”❤️

As you know, fear is sometimes a big deal about a dental appointment with our little ones. Holding hands is one way we help take away that fear at Children’s Choice. 🌈

Mrs. Rosa Parks believed in the power of touch and held hands with virtually everyone she met.

Hello H, I've been to The Mansion on O Street many times, when I lived in DC. And have taken every person who ever came to visit there too. I love it and what you do and how you do it. I'm sure you wouldn't remember, but we've talked a few times. My favorite was a story about a man that showed up there on Christmas Eve. So I hope you will allow me to share this with you and your fans. This is my friend Kathryn Cloward. She works tirelessly for her heart centered mission to ripple love, compassion and unity. She has given life to many mindful love and kindness programs, through music, art and charity. As Kathryn the Grape, she has created a series of multi-generational books and songs that contain a treasure trove of tools of love, to last a lifetime. http://kathrynthegrape.com/ Through the Kathryn Cloward Band's "Songs for Charity" program, she helps charities raise awareness for their causes by creating, performing and recording songs with meaningful messages. http://kathrynclowardband.com/ Now she needs a little help, to help others. She is working with the MPS Society to breathe life into a song called "Heroes" to help shine a light on children with MPS, a disease that has NO cure. Proceeds from the song will go to the MPS Society. Whether or not you are able to donate, I would really appreciate you sending this on to your family, friends and co-workers. http://kandoncares.org/heroes Thank you! Geri
What an awesome experience. I can’t wait to come back and see more. If I lived here I would be there all the time. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.
