Restoring the Heart of Ivy City: Alexander Crummell School (Webinar)
May 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Named after abolitionist and preacher, Reverend Alexander Crummel, this DC landmark served as the elementary school for Black children of Ivy City and Trinidad from 1912 until the early 1970s. Since its closure, neighborhood residents and school alums have advocated to preserve this historic site and secure its use as a public space and community center.
This program will explore the school’s history and its community; the life and legacy of Rev Crummell; the activism to preserve the site; and what the future holds for this important neighborhood landmark.
This virtual program is free and open to the public. It will also be streamed live to DCPL’s Facebook page.
