Mary Church Terrell‘s at LeDroit Park [#156]

Regular price $10.00 $0.00

Today I want to highlight the legacy of Mary Church Terrell, who helped end eataries segregation in the Nation’s Capital. Terell was one of the first African-American women to graduate from college, she helped found the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) and actively campaigned for black women’s suffrage. Pushed by W.E.B. Du Bois, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People made Terrell a charter member. Later, she became the first African-American woman ever appointed to a school board and then served on a committee that investigated alleged police mistreatment of African Americans.

The Terrells’ purchase of the home was instrumental in integrating LeDroit Park. This house wasn’t always so visually intriguing —originally part of a duplex, its other half burned down in the 1970s; the home that now stands was saved by a fire wall.

Despite being registered as a National Historic Landmark, the building is at risk of suffering demolition by neglect.
