LIALO Newspaper Articles 1970

cover page

The LIALO was the North  Star for African American high schools. Future generations witnessed its demise as a “shooting star” across the Louisiana sky. Prior to 1970 St. Augustine was the sole member of the LHSAA( Louisiana High School Athletic Association). February , 1970, marked the admittance of 34 LIALO members into this organization. Needless to say, this admittance was the death knell for the LIALO. The LIALO became disenfranchised.

Meanwhile , competitions in the LIALO continued at a feverish pace. The last sign of a once proud and accomplished organization ended with the North-South Basketball Game. The South squad prevailed; we lost.
