Connecting the Light

Contact: Karoline Schleh · · (504) 723-3088

Location: Collins C. Diboll Gallery, 4th Floor, Monroe Library

Exhibition runs until 11/25. Paintings and photographs by Erica Lambertson and Akasha Rabut. Erica and Akasha met in 2009 shortly after both artists found themselves living in New Orleans. They connected artistically through a mutual love and obsession for light and color. Through the years they have collaborated informally on many projects and taken a strong interest in each others work. The concept for this show came from a mutual admiration for each others work and an interest in further exploring the connection that happens naturally through an artistic friendship. Diboll Gallery hours: Mon- Sat 10-6pm

Past Harms, Present Remedies: Law Enforcement and Families Affected by Historical Police Violence

Time: 10 am to 5 pm

Contact: Christina Luwisch · · 504-861-5762

Location: 540 Broadway, Room 320

Cost: 15 Get Tickets

This convening, co-sponsored the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center and the Northeastern University School of Law's Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project, will focus on the loved ones of those killed by law enforcement from 1930 to 1955 in the four states with the highest concentration of killings:  Alabama, Georgia, Lousiana, and Mississippi. We will examine a history that was close to erasure and discuss methods for reparations.  Together with police chiefs, we will examine actions necessary to acknowledge the lives lost, incidents of violence, injustices of failed investigations, sham legal proceedings, and lenient sentences.

Advance registration is required:

Attendance is free for invited participants and Loyola students and faculty and $15 for the public.
