first classBy popular request, please join the friends and staff of the Woodridge Interim Library for our continued discussion of the book First Class Legacy of Dunbar: America's First Black Public School, by Alison Stewart.

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."
