Liber Actorum – 1978

In September 1972, BLS became co-educational, allowing girls to enroll after 337 years of being an all-boys school. The graduating class of 1978 included over 100 female students, such as Laura Soul Brown, the first Black American woman to graduate from BLS. In his departing message on behalf of all the seniors, the class president William Davis wrote, “how far we go depends upon how firmly we have grasped the ideals at BLS and how well we shall put them to use in the furthering of our education. I am sure that the class of 1978 will not let down the school or themselves.”
