“The Music of Resistance” is a multidisciplinary conversation exploring the life and legacy of local civil rights leader Llewelyn J. Soniat, who is the subject of a 2020 portrait by Brandan ‘BMike’ Odums currently on view at the museum. This program highlights Soniat’s activism, from his work in the 1960s with youth leadership groups desegregating Canal Street to his later interests in the phenomenon of police brutality in the New Orleans community. Bringing special attention to archive collections as instruments for social justice, the guest speakers for this event include Amistad Research Center archivist Felicia Render, ethnomusicologist Matt Sakakeeny, and historian Raphael Cassimere Jr.
