Phillis Wheatley School

The Phillis Wheatley School in New Orleans sustained minor damage in Hurricane Katrina, but it will be neglect and a bulldozer that will be its most dangerous disaster.  This short film is a plea to save the building before it is demolished this summer.  Check it out.  Looks about like the coolest elementary school I have ever seen.
