NOMA’s Art Thrives initiative for adults 55 and older is proud to partner with the Congo Square Preservation Society to present the Elders Sacred Talk Series, four panel discussions with prolific elder New Orleanians, celebrating the lives they lead while learning firsthand about the impact they’ve had on the city.
Join us on September 6, at 5:30 pm in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts for the first program featuring our first two honorees of the series: poet, author, and scholar Kalamu ya Salaam and Victor Harris, Big Chief of the Mandingo Warriors/Spirit of Fi-Yi-Yi. Freddi Williams Evans of the Congo Square Preservation Society will moderate the conversation. Doors open at 5 pm.
Free with museum admission. Louisiana residents receive free admission to NOMA on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation. When you arrive at NOMA, check in at the admissions desk for directions to the Lapis Center for the Arts.
