Hands Around Phyllis Wheatley
Last month DoCoMoMo Louisiana hosted a rally for support of Phyllis Wheatley Elementary School, slated for demolition this summer. Speakers included Phyllis Montana-Leblanc, John Stubbs, and John Klingman. Other participants spoke out in support of restoring the building and incorporating it into a modern school complex.
The plight of Phyllis Wheatley Elementary and the other New Orleans modernist schools is outlined in A Plea For Modernism, a short documentary by Evan Mather.
