Ward 5 Black History Street Designation Ceremonies

During 2023’s Black History Month, Councilmember Parker introduced a package of street designation bills in honor of prominent Black figures with ties to Ward 5. Now that these bills have passed the Council, we will host ceremonies to unveil these new street designations throughout 2024.

The first ceremony was on March 15, 2024 at 1900 Gallaudet St NE (symbolically designated Alexander Crummell Way). 

The second ceremony was on April 4, 2024 in the 1400 block of Morse St NE (to be symbolically designated Edna Brown Coleman Way). 

The next street designation ceremony will be for Dorothy Celeste Boulding Ferebee Way in Bloomingdale (1800 block of 2nd St NW) on June 27, 2024. Please plan to join us!
