Comments: As a 1947 graduate of BTW high school, I am distressed at the consideration of the demolition of this historical site, not only to the city of New Orleans but to the African American community that is served for many years. It was the first vocation school available to people of color could get a high school diploma and a viable working skill. Shame on you for even thinking of destroying such a rich heritage.
