Other Upcoming Events
While African American men’s roles in the indigenous ritual procession traditions go back over a century, the vital role of women is not as widely known. This exhibit illustrates a historical overview of the pride and work involved in preparing for the neighborhood processions that bring beauty and pride to New Orleans. It is documented through photographs and the ceremonial attire of the women who participate in the community based customs of the Black Masking/Mardi Gras Indian, Baby Doll and Social and Pleasure Club traditions.
