Kelly Navies, a CUA Library and Information Science graduate student, is now working as a special collections librarian at the DC Public Library. In the fall of 2013 she won a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to fund her oral history project on Washington’s U Street corridor in the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s when it was known as “Black Broadway” and was home to a nationally important cultural scene. Her project “It Don’t Mean A Thing, If It Aint Got That Swing: U Street Memories from Duke Ellington to Marvin Gaye,” was recently featured in a Washington Post Article, The voices of U Street’s ‘Black Broadway’ days are fading. Time to hit record.
