Gallery: Douglass High School through the years

Jan. 27, 2013 @ 11:45 PM

2011 marks 50 years that the all-black Douglass High School closed. In 1961, Douglass closed its doors as a school and the students integrated with Huntington High. It was a transition that was bittersweet, former Douglass students said -- one that meant new opportunities, but the passing of a time when their world was close-knit and familiar.
