negro history week @janney elementary school
This is the 2nd installment on Negro History Week in 1968. Click here for the first post.
The program comes from Janney Elementary School, Wisconsin Avenue & Albemarle Street, NW. It is for Negro History Week, 11-17 February. It states that Mr. Elward was in charge of the Negro History Week celebration.
The program is from a 1967-1968 scrapbook that the Janney PTA made each year. Clara V. Diehl, PTA Historian, compiled this "record book." The 1967-1968 scrapbook was the last one completed by the PTA. It's full of photographs, newspapers articles, meeting minutes, etc. great stuff!
I thank Lena Frumin, Janney's Enrichment Program Director, for letting me look through the scrapbook and take photos with my iPhone. She and Naomi Todd photographed the entire scrapbook--109 pages--and emailed it to me.
Did you go to Janney in 1967-1968? Do you remember celebrating Negro History Week? Do you remember Mr. Elward? Were you part of the PTA?
