Comments: I am old enough to remember Booker T. Washington as being the cultural center for the African American community. However, on each of my not to often enough visits New Orleans one of the places my nieces would take me to see was their high school. Even as a young girl growing up in Mississippi, I remember attending graduations and school plays at this historical school. I am in favor of FEMA spending money to tear down and restore this grand school. I just hope that FEMA will give this community what it wants, a brand new Booker T. Washington High School; one they can be proud of.
