Comments: I grew up in New Orleans and remember so well the great significance that Booker T. Washington had on the entire African American community. Severl of my cousins graduated from this institution. It deserves to be restored to the greatest splendor possible. $59M is a small investment to make in such a great project. Although this means it will have to be torn down, a new and more state of the art facility needs to be in its place. Our community has too often been tricked by politicians, PLEASE, rebuilding this grand school in the manner befitting its heritage.
