Peggy Cooper Cafritz was a fixture of the D.C. art scene. She amassed one of the most impressive collections of African American Art in the country, rebuilt after a fire destroyed much of the original collection in 2009. Beyond her personal art collection, she had an outsized influence on the arts and culture locally. She was the driving force behind the renowned Duke Ellington School of the Arts in 1974, the first of its kind in the District. Today, we remember her life and legacy with Davey Yarborough, a friend, employee and teacher at Duke Ellington.
