The Melting Pot: History of the Class of ‘59
The Melting Pot: History of the Class of ’59 is a must read for every Liberian mourning the loss of Liberia’s standing as an education melting pot before the civil war. The BWI class of ’59 is a microcosm of the heights for which Liberia’s academic system was admired across the continent of Africa. This book is being published at a time when answers are being sought for how to fix Liberia’s education mess. The answers are in this book. BWI was in 1959 and still is today, a trade school. But look how far its students went and how much they accomplished — two pilots, several engineers, several entrepreneurs, an international environmental expert, two lawyers, and much more! Members of the class of ’59 matriculated to and were trained by top institutions around the world such as Harvard, the University of Taiwan and Fort Benning. The members of this class also returned to make significant contributions to their country, Liberia.
The year of this publication makes BWI as an institution 90 years old as, it strives to reclaim its former glory, having been patterned after the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.
