first classJoin the friends and staff of the Woodridge Interim Library in a discussion of the book First Class Legacy of Dunbar: America's First Black Public School, by Alison Stewart.

At the time of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling, Dunbar High sent 80 percent of its graduates to college — the highest rate of any school in the District of Columbia, black or white.

The Chicago Review Press says the book is "a fascinating history of the first U.S. high school for African Americans with an unflinching analysis of urban public-school education today; First Class explores an underrepresented and largely unknown aspect of black history while opening a discussion on what it takes to make a public school successful."
