Join us for some light refreshments on Friday, February 10th at 1:00 p.m. and hear author, Rolonda Teal, describe the development of her book, Natchitoches Parish, and the process of collecting community history. Copies of Rolonda’s book will be available for purchase in the Museum Store for $19.99 each.
For hundreds of years, Natchitoches Parish has been the home for many African Americans who have made a difference in our country. In this book that honors the area's past, readers will learn stories of religion, socialization, education, and community leadership.
Author, Rolonda Teal, shares the lives and memories of many in Natchitoches Parish that go untold. Teal’s hope is that “this work will leave a written and visual reference for people who are interested in African American history, the history of Louisiana and the south as well as American history in general.”
