"DONT' STAND ALONE”: Black Labor Organizing in New Orleans – a mobile exhibit

Black New Orleanians’ importance to organizing in workplaces and leading an innovative local labor movement often goes under the radar in the history books and in public consciousness. This exhibition highlights under-recognized industries and under-valued events in New Orleans' history from the Reconstruction era to the present where Black residents have had a crucial role. 


Based on years of a community-university research collaboration led by NOWCRJ, the public will have the opportunity to reflect on the past, present, and future of Black-led labor organizing in the Crescent City.  

The exhibition opens on March 14, 2024, at the Small Center, 1725 Baronne St., and runs through May 10th.
