New Orleans African American Museum Re-Opens Treme Buildings

NOAAM Facebook
New Orleans African American Museum in the Treme

The New Orleans African American Museum re-opens its exhibit in the Treme tonight (Thursday, 4/11). Originally opened in 1996, the center has had its share of problems - termites, hurricanes and mold have added to the personnel challenges. To commemorate the long-delayed opening, NOAAM and Tulane’s Amistad Center for Research present "Everywhere we are, Everywhere we go - Black Space and Geographies." Gia Hamilton, NOAAM’s Executive Director, took a few minutes to talk with Karl Lengel about the re-opening.


Karl Lengel worked at New Orleans Public Radio for more than two decades before leaving the station in 2023.
