Students Win Street Law DC Human Rights Act Capstone Mock Trial

Congratulations to the following artists/scholars who recently competed against students from Jackson-Reed High School and won the city-wide Street Law DC Human Rights Act Capstone Mock Trial.

Anya Barrus, Gabriella Boss, Autumn Drake, Fatou Gaye, Sidney Gayle, Patience Goines, April Kilpatrick, Cecillia Lapetini, Skylar Ogunshakin-White, Etianna Prophete, Kayla Randolph, Rosemary Sellers, and Willow Singleton.

Street Law is an elective course taught at DESA and other D.C. public high schools. Its purpose is to introduce high school students to areas of the law, including civil rights, constitutional law, torts, housing law, family law, and other legal issues that impact their lives.

We are proud of these brilliant young people for representing our wonderful home built by Peggy Cooper Cafritz and Mike Malone. We greatly thank our Administration for making the historic decision to allow the Duke Ellington School of the Arts to formally host the Ellington/Jackson-Reed competition for the first time EVER! We just made history AGAIN!!!

From Ms. Lynne Moore and Director Greg Watkins
