Ninth graders in Mr. Vanterpool’s English class visited the Decatur Carriage House on Tuesday as part of the “African Americans in the White House Neighborhood Program.” Students are researching the role of African Americans in Washington, D.C. history including Duke Ellington, Paul Jennings, and Charlotte Dupuy. They looked at the slave quarters and did poster boards in which kids explored different important African American figures from the time period. The David M. Rubinstein National Center for White House History is housed at the Decatur House, including historical documents, old photos, and other items preserved from our city’s history.
