Fascinating history. I knew someone who taught at Carter G. Woodson, on Avenue B, back in the late '70s and early '80s - right in the heart of all these places! Faculty was advised to stay away from the Silver Star.

It's great to have photos to go with the names of these places.  Thanks for compiling this.
