The legacy of Crispus Attucks was on full display on Thursday, Aug. 18, when current and former students gathered for the school’s 2016 Alumni Day.
 
Graduates from historic Crispus Attucks High School (now Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School) had an opportunity to mingle with the younger generation throughout the day. Current students showed the alumni around the school, stopping in classrooms to talk about their medical-based curriculum, while alumni proudly pointed to their class pictures which are proudly displayed along the hallway walls.
 
Alumni Day was held in conjunction with the premiere of the documentary “Attucks: The School That Opened a City.” The 90-minute film highlights the successful academic side of the school, which opened in 1927 as the only all-black segregated high school in the city. 
 
Alumni reminisced about their time at Attucks while learning more about the school’s current program and students. They were also treated to a musical performance, a welcome breakfast and lunch. The day ended with a red carpet VIP reception, followed by the film screening.
