About the event

In the current anti-black, anti-immigrant legislative environment, join us to explore the vital but often forgotten role of Black workers in shaping labor movements and improving conditions in New Orleans. This event, founded on years of community-university research, delves into the rich tradition of resilience, unity, and solidarity among Black and Brown workers. 

From historical struggles to today's challenges, experience the power of collective action. Amidst Louisiana's current anti-worker legislation, which targets Black and immigrant communities, this exhibit stands as a crucial reminder of the individuals we honor—those who have tirelessly advanced the fight for workers' rights.

The exhibit is a collaborative project led by the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice; the Center for Public Service, the Department of History, and the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design at Tulane University; the Ethel & Herman L. Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies and the Justice Studies Program at the University of New Orleans, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and the Department of American Studies and Public Humanities Program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
