In observance of African-American history month, our facility will host a jazz lecture Saturday Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. Our presenters will include: Dr. Joyce Jackson from the Geography and Anthropology Department at Louisiana State University, Kathe Hambrick-Jackson from the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville, and Dr. Richard A. Schwartz from the Music Department at Southeastern Louisiana University. The presenters will focus on the musical fundamentals of jazz, its cultural influences, and the rural roots of jazz.
For the valentine season, Movie Nights will continue on Friday Feb. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., with Cyrano de Bergerac (1950). Cyrano, a master swordsman and poet, is doomed to live with an absurdly long nose. He falls in love with the beautiful Roxanne, but she is in love with the handsome Christian. Cyrano and Christina deceive Roxanne with tragic results. Dates for future Movie Nights will be: March 19, April 16, May 21, and June 18. There will also be free refreshments! Due to limited seating, please call (225) 687-7158 to make a reservation.
