from "Dream Deferred," by Ana Depina, February/March 1995 Argo

"I do not believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Dream was just for us to use the same facilities but for us to see ourselves as human beings and not racial beings, because we all belong to the same race, The Human Race. The school is diverse in many ways but for the most part in numbers only . . . My conclusion about self-segregation is that we have not yet learned the truth but go by stereotype. If we have not learned at BLS, then we will never learn, because the resources are here. I can't make any of you decide not to segregate yourselves, but I have made you aware of the problem. My reason for doing so is to better the Latin School Community. We were forced to stop institutional segregation, but only our own will can pull down the walls of self-segregation."
