WE HAVE SOME BIG TRIPS COMING UP
In 1963, when the students attempted to march from BTW to Little Union, they were beaten by Shreveport Police and never made it. This heartbreaking act was video; however, the video never surfaced until Wednesday of this week. SPD will be revealing the footage here at BTW on Monday at 1:00PM.
MEMBERS OF BTW BAND AT THEIR LMEA DISTRICT VIII HONOR BAND PERFORMANCE TODAY (not pictured: Destiny Osborne)....CONGRATS TO THESE STUDENTS THAT SHOWED THAT HARD WORK PAYS OFF
Black History Month is about honoring those who've come before us by ensuring the longevity of their legacies. Shreveport has its share of black legacies that are alive and well today. Those who've come before us would be proud that we are continuing the work.
In 1945, educational facilities for blacks were reported by community activists and students to have been in "deplorable" condition. Construction of a new high school was proposed as a solution to the matter. Enrollments were overcrowded at Central Colored High School and the Milam Street Trade School. Booker T. Washington High School was born at a site across from the trade school. Completed in 1949, it was named for the founder of Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. In 2015, Booker T. Washington was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Shreveport’s most influential black legacy is Booker T. Washington High School.
Today, the school is still holding strong and being led by Crystal Tate-Barnes, she is a alumna.
