African American Museum

African American Museum Review

This museum traces the African and African-American experience in southern Louisiana. Videos, artifacts, and text panels combine to create a vivid, disturbing, and inspiring portrait of a people. It is an ambitious and refreshing balance to the sometimes sidelined or romanticized references to slavery and its legacy.
