Preserve Louisiana, the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation, Forum 35 and Dialogue on Race Louisiana invite you to Blues Lagniappe!

Panelists Joyce Jackson (Blues Historian), artists Lil Jimmy Reed and Harvey Knox, and facilitator Maxine Crump (executive director of Dialogue on Race Louisiana), will discuss the history of the blues in Louisiana and specifically its roots in race dynamics during the time of its origin.

Following the lecture, join us in the Rose Garden to enjoy signature cocktails and the tunes of Harvey Knox & Friends.
