Tulane University Special Collections announces a new exhibit:

Captive Voices: Hearing, Seeing and Imagining Angola Prison
September 17, 2019 – November 29, 2019.

In coordination with the Tulane University Reading Project and One Book New Orleans’ 2019 selection, Vengeance, by Tulane Professor of English Zachary Lazar, this exhibit uses materials from the Tulane University Special Collections and Lazar’s personal archives to reveal often hidden aspects of the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

The exhibit includes drawings from the Curtis and Davis architectural firm of the prison’s 1954 rebuilding, construction photographs by noted architectural photographer Frank Lotz Miller documenting the inmate construction crew, prison-related ephemera created by various political and social welfare organizations, selections of the inmate produced Angolite magazine, a multi-media display showcasing the music of former inmate Robert Pete Williams, and manuscripts, artifacts, and other inmate created artwork from the personal collection of Professor Lazar.

Generous support provided by the Marjorie Peirce Geiser and John Geiser, Jr. Fund.

Curated by Special Collections staff, Captive Voices: Hearing, Seeing and Imagining Angola Prison opens September 17, 2019 and runs through November 29, 2019 at the Tulane University Special Collections 2nd Floor Gallery, 6801 Freret Street, Jones Hall, on Tulane University’s Uptown campus.

  1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
