If you’ve had your fill of political correctness and long for the good old days when class was king, Priscilla Roosevelt’s slide-illustrated lecture, “Serfdom and Splendor: The World of the Russian Country Estate,” will prove plenty nostalgic. Focusing on the mid-18th to early 19th centuries, Roosevelt, author of Life on the Russian Country Estate, discusses the interrelationship of the nobility and the numberless serfs who made their lavish lifestyle possible. At 6 p.m. at the Meridian International Center’s White-Meyer House, 1624 Crescent Pl. NW. FREE. For reservations call (202) 939-5568. (Maria Ware)
