Purchased Lives Workshop

In conjunction with Bayou Teche Museum and Iberia Parish Library, the Shadows-on-the-Teche will participate in a workshop for students ages 13-17.  The workshop is one of Iberia Parish Library's Summer Workshops for 2017.  Bayou Teche Museum will feature an exhibit called "Purchased Lives."  This traveling exhibit focuses on the collective effect of slavery on the African American family unit.  The exhibit at Bayou Teche Museum is supported by Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.  At the Shadows, students will focus on the lives of individuals in their age in the nineteenth century.  The workshop is free of charge.  Please contact Iberia Parish Library for additional details or the register for the workshop.
