J.P. Sousa Junior High School

MLK day, 1971 at the John Philip Sousa Junior High School.

The John Philip Sousa Middle School, formerly the John Philip Sousa Junior High School, is a public school located at 3650 Ely Place in SE area of Washington, D.C. Located in the city’s Fort Dupont neighborhood, it serves grades 6-8. Its school building, built in 1950, was the scene of civil rights action not long after its construction. Twelve black students were denied admission to all-white school. This action was eventually overturned in the landmark 1954 Supreme Court decision in Bolling v. Sharpe, which made segregated public schools illegal in the District of Columbia. The defeat of the legal doctrine “separate but equal” marked an early victory in the modern Civil Rights Movement. The school was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2001 for its role in this action.–Wikipedia

within a few weeks the narcissus leaves will appear.
“Once the leaves die back in summer, the roots also wither. After some years, the roots shorten pulling the bulbs deeper into the ground (contractile roots). The bulbs develop from the inside, pushing the older layers outwards which become brown and dry, forming an outer shell, the tunic or skin.”–Wikipedia
