About the Oswald Durant Center

Formerly a USO center, the Center was named after Dr. Oswald Durant, one of the first African American doctors in Alexandria. For many years Dr. Durant could not practice at the local hospital because of segregation. Some patients of color in need of emergency care would show up at his home in the middle of the night to be treated for their injuries.

The Oswald Durant Center is located in the Upper King Street neighborhood of Old Town and provides community programming and meeting space on demand.
