Name: David Downin
City: New Orleans, LA
Booker T. Washington School
Comments: The article state the building is on the historic list. For that reason along the city and the state should protest and not allow this to happen. FEMA has the power and the authority to save and refurbish this building of history. The reason the building is on the list is that it is recorded as being over 100 years old. As a life long resident (born in Charity Hospital in the 1950's) I ask and demand to keep Booker T. Washington standing and refurbish it like Joseph A. Craig was refurbish. Take a look at what it did for not only the neighborhood but what it did for the city.
Best regards,

Concerned, New Orleanian
