Stevens School: DC's Little Known Educational Landmark

Stevens School, on 21st Street between K and L, is the DC's oldest school still in use, with much history to tell about DC public schools in general. Built in 1868 as the first public school for Black children, it is a surviving symbol of nearly a century of school segregation. Now newly rehabbed and modernized, it has gained renewed life as the school system's only stand-alone preschool learning center drawing children from all over the city. Historian Ralph Buglass will look back at the days of school segregation in the nation's capital through the lens of this little-known landmark.
