Jonathon Lockett School

 Previously unpublished notes from 2007

They want to demolish Jonathon Lockett School.

People are rebuilding their homes around the school.

The school is an historic site. Only African American school children in the 9th Ward could go to from 1929 due to integration laws.

The argument against demolishing this school - children will come to Jonathon Lockett School - Habitat for Humanity is building homes around it.
