Who Was Alexander Crummell?
The Crummell School has been in the forefront of Ivy City development news as the site is considered for development. Many of us have seen the building but may not know much about the Rev. Alexander Crummell, an abolitionist and Pan-African nationalist after whom the school was named. There will be an event at the school site (1900 Gallaudet Street NE) on Thursday, September 10th from 6:00 to 8:30 pm to celebrate his life and view the school grounds.
The event is sponsored by Friends of Crummell School, Empower DC, DC Preservation League, dog & pony dc, and ANC 5D01. You can learn more about Rev. Crummell or RSVP for the event at the Empower DC website.
