To Be Dunbar

"To Be Dunbar" examines the nation’s first public high school for African Americans, Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, a site of academic excellence in DC until desegregation. The film examines several key turning points in the school's history and the consequences of these changes for the local community and for public education in DC. Johnathan Carrington, a current Georgetown student who graduated from Dunbar, is featured as a main character along with other alumni who speak to the identity of Dunbar, its past prominence, its recent challenges, and the possibilities of its new campus.
