    Frederick Douglass to hold open house Saturday

    Frederick Douglass Elementary will host an open house and ice cream social to show off a permanent exhibit of the school’s African-American history.

    The exhibit, created through a partnership between George Mason University, the Black History Committee of the Thomas Blatch Library and Loudoun County Public Schools documents the struggles of the African-American community for equal education and the history of the school.

    Frederick Douglass Elementary opened as a segregated school in 1958 and was integrated in 1968 under court order. It remained open as a school until 1982 when it was used for program and administrative offices.

    The school was demolished last year and a new one has been built in its place.

    The open house begins at 2 p.m. Saturday. For further information, email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
