River Road African American Museum Celebrates 25 Year Gala

The River Road African American Museum captures the spirit, soul, and significance of the people who thrived and enriched south Louisiana’s sugarcane country.
Visitors receive a rare glimpse into the lives of the enslaved and free people of color who lived in the rural communities of this region, known as “plantation country.” Exhibits reflect the fortitude and achievements birthed by a generation of artists, educators, physicians, craftsmen, politicians, inventors, and musicians.
The museum’s collection of unique buildings is located in the beautiful downtown historic district of Donaldsonville, just moments away from the mighty Mississippi River.
