A District street is getting a new name Friday -- but one that's probably already familiar to the people who live there.
Part of Roxanna Road NW will become Hilda H.M. Mason Way.
Mason was a former at-large member of the D.C. Council, best known for advocating for education and working to help lower-income residents. She was also an outspoken advocate of home rule
Mason died in 2007 at the age of 91.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray will be on hand for today's event in the 1400 block of Roxanna Road NW.
