Our winter 2021 special issue of 64 Parishes offers a bevy of Louisiana humanities content. In our features we’re pleased to present memories of civil rights icon Oretha Castle Haley from her grandson Blair Dottin-Haley; a reflection on southwest Louisiana’s struggle with a changing coast by Megan Poole; a long read about Reggie Adams, the Up Stairs Lounge fire’s sole victim known to be Black, by Robert Fieseler; and a primer on Louisiana’s festival queens from 64 Parishes managing editor Chris Turner-Neal.
We’re also proud to present:
- Parish spotlights from Beauregard, West Feliciana, Lafayette, St. Tammany, and Ascension
- Jim Croce’s last gig
- A look at the unpeopled places in Louisiana
- Lost Lit’s look at a novel of Choctaw history and identity
- Gravy, gravy, and more gravy in Ouachita
- The historically Black town of Ironton, battered by Ida and government inaction
- And an introduction to our new Poet Laureate, Mona Lisa Saloy.
