louisiana trip highlights

Nine students, accompanied by Dr. Dierenfield, flew down to Louisiana for the weekend of the 21st of September through the 23rd. The trip included students from Dr. Dierenfield's "Plantations, Ghettos, Prisons: The Black Experience in America" class alongside other students from the Honors college.

The crew toured Angola Prison, otherwise known as "The Farm," the largest maximum security prison in the country with 6,300 inmates and 18,000 inmates.

They also toured the Nottoway, Whitney, Evergreen, and Laura plantations to learn about the history of slavery in Louisiana from two perspectives- before and after the Louisiana Purchase.

Like true Louisiana natives, the students also visited Bourbon Street and tried such culinary delights as gator, jambalaya, gumbo, catfish, frog legs and hush puppies!
