CALL FOR PAPERS: 2022 Louisiana Historical Association Annual Meeting

Please consider this invitation CALL FOR PAPERS to submit a proposal for presentation at the 2022 annual conference of the Louisiana Historical Association to be held in New Orleans in March.  IAAHS Members can submit proposals as individuals and we encourage you to do so. For example, Phebe Hayes is working on a proposal with Michael Bieze that tells the story of Howe Institute, St. Paul Congregational Church, and Booker T. Washington’s visit to New Iberia in 1915. There are other stories and you may have one to tell.

The mission of the organization is to foster the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of the long, rich, and unique history of African Americans in Iberia Parish.

By example, and through programs and activities, we encourage and promote research, preservation and publication of historical materials related to the history of African Americans in the Louisiana Sugar Parishes.
