Earlier in the summer CRRA volunteers helped install a new playground at James Weldon Johnson Elementary school, at Monroe and Green. CRRA is committed to helping this neighborhood school improve.

James Weldon Johnson was an important American author in the early part of the 20th century. His work helped inspire the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s. Wikipedia has more information about this very interesting man who was active in many creative and scholarly fields.
