Join us in exploring the lives of the enslaved in Louisiana.

Audubon State Historic Site is the home of Historic Oakley Plantation which once was one of the largest plantations in Louisiana. Oakley today hosts this yearly exploration of early Louisiana slavery and African American History each year in January along with its companion school day on Friday.

Park Rangers will be on hand to give tours of the slave cabins and discuss family life. The African influence on food ways will be illustrating the ties between the modern day kitchen and the days of slavery.

This program is geared towards an adult and young adult audience. The program may be cancelled due to inclement weather. All public health requirements at the time will be enforced.
