March in conjunction with the #BYP100NOLA action against White Supremacist monuments... #FrenchQuarter
Ole Miss' knows just HOW our Soul runs deep... #NOLA #MAAFA2015Next stop on the #Maafa commemoration March in conjunction with the #BYP100NOLA action against White Supremacist monuments, we take a moment to stand on the corner of Chartres and St. Louis in the French Quarter which was once the site of one of the largest slave markets. A plaque on the restaurant that sits on the corner , "The Original Pierre Masperos Restaurant" reads: ORIGINAL PIERRE MASPERO'S SLAVE EXCHANGE - EST 1788. Within this historic structure slaves were sold ..." In the 1990s, the restaurant used to be decorated with slave chains and whips but after a direct community led action during Essence Fest, they were removed.
chanting "...no more violence, no more pain." ~may the petitions be accepted in good favor.
