About Dunbar:

The Dunbar School was the first and only segregated school in Tucson established in 1912. The school was completed in January 1918, for the purpose of educating Tucson’s African-American students and named after Paul Lawrence Dunbar, a renowned African-American Poet. African-American children in first through ninth grades attended Dunbar until 1951, when de-jure segregation was eliminated from the school systems of Arizona. When segregation in Arizona was eliminated, Dunbar School became the non-segregated John Spring Junior High School, and continued as such until 1978 when the school was closed permanently.
