Sites of Resistance: An exploration of the geographies and histories of social change in New Orleans
Exhibit Opening Reception
Join us on Tuesday, September 12 for the opening of Sites of Resistance, and for remarks given by Bill Quigley, law professor and Director of the Law Clinic and the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center at Loyola University New Orleans.
Our intent within Sites of Resistance is to reframe a dominant narrative that has obscured New Orleans’ historical role as a site of intense organizing, legal strategy, labor struggle, and civil rights activism. By elevating lineages and spaces of dissent and marginalized stories of inter-racial collaboration, as well as histories of direct conflict and challenge in contested spaces, we hope to reconnect our audience with the possibilities for making change that have been erased from our civic framework.
