Our Mammy’s shares the stories of Louisiana’s African Americans through the lens of the founder’s ancestors—what they contributed, how they survived, why it’s important—so that future generations can understand what was sacrificed and be inspired by all the ancestors have accomplished in the face of adversity.
Our Mammy's makes people feel closer to their history. We merged genealogy with history to make more personal.
Our Mammy's was created in 2013 to honor the legacy of those who sacrificed their lives to take care of others. Every seed planted in Louisiana soil blossoms in classrooms, libraries, and museums. "My grandmothers sacrifices are acknowledged with every presentation and will never be forgotten."- Gaynell Brady
"I want to thank you for joining us on our annual Heritage Day. The weather was almost perfect and we hosted over 800 students and teachers! I talked to many of the kids as they were leaving about what they learned and lost count of how many told me about Grandma Zeline. You seemed to be one of the favorites (of course)." Brenda
