Dunbar Center

The Dunbar Center--also known at various times at the Dunbar Civic Center and the Dunbar Community Center--was a social and social services organization for Ann Arbor's black community in the mid-twentieth century.  It was the direct precursor to the Ann Arbor Community Center.  Along with the Bethel AME Church and the Second Baptist Church, the Dunbar Center was a major hub of social life for the black community during this period.

Tony Achols (in photo at left) thought the blood pressure test administrated by Dorothy Steinicke was a cinch. His buddy, Brian Young, watched with interest at the Ann Arbor Model Cities Health Fair held Saturday at the Community Center 625 N. Main, But not everyone had an easy time of it. There were some tense moments for Leslie Fair (in photo at right) who created a sight of relief after an immunization shot. Lending Leslie some support was Ellen Bishop, one of the workers from 35 agencies who participated in the free medical testing event. The fair continues today from noon to 5 p.m. and is open to the public. There will be testing for hearing, vision, anemia, TB, diabetes, sickle cell, hypertension and back and nerve problems. Pre-school inoculations also will be given. (News Photos by Jack Stubbs)
