Dancing in the Streets: Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs of New Orleans Exhibit

When California-native New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell cancelled Second Lines in the winter of last year, thousands of Black New Orleanians were robbed of their ability to feed their families, pay their mortgages or rent, and keep groceries on the table.

Do you miss the Second Lines? I know I do.

The Historic New Orleans Collection just announced an exhibit that will fete New Orleans Second Line culture between now and June 13th 2021.

We’ve all come to realize that the big rollicking Sunday afternoon street parties are not coming back until Cantrell leaves office so this is one of the only available options to enjoy the culture til that moment occurs.
