RL Reeves Jr covers the second line culture in New Orleans
Friday, August 24, 2018 at Dillard University, the Ray Charles Program will host a dialogue on the Social Aid and Pleasure Club culture in New Orleans.
The S&P clubs pump millions of dollars into New Orleans economy. How many tens of thousands of bottles of Ozarka and Heineken change hands over a hot, four mile long parade route? How many turkey legs are smoked and sold out of the backs of pickup trucks? How many pralines are vended? How many hot sausage po boys are sold?
Let’s hope they talk about that.
Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs should be recognized for this contribution.
At Dillard University’s event there will be a panel discussion on the “relationship between material culture and communities”
No word on who the panelists will be.
Hope to see y’all there:
