Join us on Tuesday, November 14 from 6pm to 9pm for the opening reception of Jazz Funeral Secondlines + Protest: TAKING OVER THE STREETS featuring works by Sekou Fela and curated by Monique Moss.

This reception is free and open to the public, presented by the New Orleans Jazz Museum and M.A. Museum Studies Program — Southern University at New Orleans


Jazz Funeral Secondlines + Protest: TAKING OVER THE STREETS juxtaposes the traditional practice of the Secondline in New Orleans against political protest in cities such as New York and Los Angeles.

Both the Secondline and the political protests illuminate the parallels of convergence and congregation of people in the street as public
domain, in order to officiate cultural rites and proclaim civil rites. The images capture the people ‘taking over the streets’ in the Spirit of the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa known as the Nguzo Saba. The exhibition encourages inquiry into the history and culture of African American struggles for socio-economic equity and political justice
from the Civil Rights era of the 1960’s to contemporary movements such as Black Lives Matter and the Take 'Em Down NOLA.

Featuring works by:
Sekou Fela (born George Lebeaud)

Curated by:
Monique Moss

This exhibition was made possible by a partnership between the Center for African and African American Studies (CAAAS)
at Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) and the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint
