Through facilitated interactive history lessons, children engage, construct, and learn difficult topics such as slavery, emancipation, civil rights, and freedom.
Engage & Learn History
At Our Mammy's, we do more than just programs. WE make sure every child is actively Engaged with objects from Louisiana's African American history. OUR number one goal is to plant a seed in the hearts of every person participating in one of our facilitated programs and hands-on history museum.
Participants are invited to learn about the lives of Louisiana's Mammies. Stories are heart-felt and interactive activities are relevant to Louisiana and American History. Some of the activities include examining artifacts, interpreting evidence, discussing facts, and participating in various crafts.
