Description

Sacred Rituals


Presented by: Dr. Joyce Jackson

Folklorist and Professor Joyce Jackson will share her research on sacred rituals from the African diaspora including one in north Louisiana that has been in practice continuously for more than 150 years. Jackson will show a short documentary she produced on the Easter Rock sacred ritual led by generations of women in Winnsboro, Louisiana. She will discuss how rituals were masked in order to transcend oppression and to survive over time.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for free food and networking, and the talk will start at 6 p.m. Remember, people of all ages are welcome, so please spread the word and join us for a fun and informative night!

For more info call 225-578-3870 for details.
