This Multiple Property Documentation (MPD) Form facilitates the nomination to the registers of resources that document the lives of African American citizens in Alexandria. It illuminates how they formed a supportive community to fulfill their needs to educate, house, and provide for themselves and their children under restrictive conditions. The MPD is divided into three contexts – residential development, educational development, and communal development for the period 1790 through 1953.
