Catto Forges Black Schools in D.C. Timelines: The Catto Years

Catto takes a one month leave of absence from ICY to work on curriculum for black schools in Washington, D.C. He was received with great enthusiasm. Many working in the schools are former ICY students. Among the beneficiaries of Catto’s work is the M Street School (later renamed Dunbar High School), which became the premier black high school in the nation.
