April 1st
9:00-10:00
Sliman Theater
129 East Main St.

Historians from the Iberia Parish African American Historical Society will provide an overview of how 19th century historical events (Civil War, Reconstruction, and Jim Crow) unfolded in New Iberia and surrounding areas. There will also be a discussion on how these events, over time, gave rise to Klan-like groups in Iberia Parish and the public sentiments that supported them.
