FRIENDS OF CRUMMELL SCHOOL SEEKS PUBLIC USE, NOT PRIVATIZATION, OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORIC LANDMARK
Mayor Bowser recently announced plans to privatize a cherished African American historic site, the Alexander Crummell School. But, no stranger to adversity, the Ivy City community is pushing back, demanding that the school be used for recreation and workforce development, as long advocated by residents. The Friends of Crummell School has launched a new website and announced a series of activities to unite the community and its friends around their vision for a center dedicated to community uplift at the Crummell School.
