Statement from Remetter C Freeman, Crummell School alumna
This page is meant to be a gathering place for all those who love the small, historic IVY CITY neighborhood in NE Washington, DC. Ivy City is one of DC's most Historic African American communities. We invite the current and former residents and friends of Ivy City to share photos, memories and mementos -- and to come together to advocate for the preservation and uplift of Ivy City, as an affordable and close-knit African American community. I am an Alumni of Crummell School, beginning Kindergarten in (1930), and graduating in (1941). I was a part of a community that exemplified love, through our many interactions with each other. My roots are very deep since I have been a continuing member of the Bethesda Baptist Church, on the corner of Capitol Ave., and Mount Olivet Rd. N.E. The Gentrification of D.C. is destroying the heritage of the African American Communities. I would like for my Children, Grandchildren, Great-grandchildren, and Great-Great Grandchildren, etc. to have a legacy of some of the contributions, and achievements of African Americans in this City. I urge the Mayor, City Council, and all of our other Officials to let us keep some of our Heritage, for so many of our youth of today, who know nothing about the accomplishments of our Forefathers.
