A Normal Classroom at Douglass

“The historic Frederick Douglass High School has seen its ups and its downs during the hundred years it has served its predominantly African- American Baltimore students. Right now Frederick Douglass is experiencing a renaissance with enthusiastic teachers and students who are excited to learn. However, the outdated facilities are an obstacle to learning. Every time it rains, this basement classroom will flood, adding to existing water damage from a fire three years ago.”
