Sept. 24: LEH’s Governors Project Stops in New Orleans

As citizens go to the polls this fall, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities presents The Louisiana Governors Project, a series of public events designed to position history as a voter guide. On Thursday, September 24 at 6pm, the seven parish tour stops in New Orleans for a conversation about the administration of Gov. David Treen.

Robert Mann of LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication will talk with panelists Treen adviser Sally Nungesser, former legislator Bubba Henry, former news anchor Norman Robinson and Lanny Keller of The Baton Rouge Advocate about Gov. Treen, who served from 1980 to 1984. Each of the panels aims to generate new insights on the roles and responsibilities of Louisiana’s chief executive.

Doors open at 5:30pm for a reception, and the panel begins at 6pm. The event is free and open to the public. Click here for our Facebook event page.

The LHC is located at 938 Lafayette Street in New Orleans. For more information, call 504.620.2476.
