Art and the Politics of Representation in Louisiana's Civil Rights Movement

Keller Library & Community Center
Wednesday, March 22 from 6pm - 7:30pm

In the 1890s and 1900s, racist political cartoons ridiculed African Americans, and plantation postcards depicted African Americans happily toiling in cotton fields in a new Golden Age of the South. But, when African Americans photographed themselves, especially in Louisiana, they showed a dignity and humanity that was central to their advancement. This lecture compares and contrasts representations of African Americans in photographs in Louisiana in the 1890s and 1900s.

Presentation by Dr. Nikki Brown.

Technology and Higher Education in Louisiana

Mid-City Library
Wednesday, April 12 from 6pm - 7:30pm
