We’re really looking forward to getting a copy of History Between These Folds a group effort from this year’s junior class at George Washington Carver High School in New Orleans 9th Ward.

Kiese Laymon, an English professor at the University of Mississippi, was instrumental in helping the teenagers get published. Nearly 80 9th Ward 11th graders participated in the project.

Eric Parrie, a history teacher at G.W. Carver Collegiate Academy gave the students an assignment to “tell the story of a meaningful moment and just tell it as powerfully and beautifully and in as detailed a way as you can”

History Between These Folds is the result
