Should officials change Woodrow Wilson H.S.’s name, weigh in…

Today residents, alumni, and others get to start the discussion on whether the District’s Woodrow Wilson High School should have its name changed.

“Time to Consider Changing the Name of Woodrow Wilson High School Forum and Community discussion is set for tonight at 7 at the high school. The discussion is not on what to possibly rename the school but it’s more about President Wilson’s Impact on the city.

History shows that President Wilson brought Jim Crow practices to the Federal Government. He fired and demoted black employees who had found a way to advancement in the federal civil service. His racists hiring tactics decimated the middle-class black family in Washington, DC. Historians even say his actions fueled segregation in housing and education.

The event will be moderated by Ray Suarez, a broadcast journalist, and father of a Wilson High School graduate. It will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. The doors open to the public at 6:30 p.m.
