Greetings Alumni, Friends and Supporters,

You are cordially invited to join us at the Dunbar Alumni Federation’s Black History Month Celebration: An Afternoon at Arena Stage featuring “Tempestuous Elements on Sunday, February 25, 2024, at 2 pm. The Arena Stage is located at 1101 Sixth Street, SW, Washington, DC 20024. The ticket cost is $115.00 per person. For your convenience, click here for the Reservation Form or you may reserve online.  Masks are required for this performance.

This performance is based on the renowned educator, social activist and feminist, Anna J. Cooper, and her tenure as principal at the M Street High School. During this critical period in the history of the DC public school system, the prevailing opinion regarding the education of black students began to shift from trade and vocational training to college preparatory. This idea set the stage for the M Street High School to become the leading institution in preparing black students to not only to enter major universities and colleges of that era, but to be very successful in whatever course of study they had chosen. Thus Anna J. Cooper and her model for excellence, scholarship, academics and activism lead the charge for shaping these young minds.

Come and be a part of the historic Paul Laurence Dunbar High School story first hand. This is a must-see event! If you have any questions, please contact the DAF Office via telephone 202.724.4194 or email .  We look forward to seeing you there.

Creating better futures,
