During his visit to Southeastern Louisiana University as a participant in the symposium “Louisiana in Continuity and Change: Challenges Past and Present Confronting the Bayou State,” Governor John Bel Edwards toured the newly created student exhibit in the Center for Southeast Louisiana Studies.
The exhibit is designed to highlight themes of the symposium, which focused on historical problems that prove acute in the Bayou State.
The exhibit includes rare documents, artifacts, and photos that highlight critical issues confronting Louisiana from the colonial period to the present.
The exhibit, along with a forthcoming book highlighting the proceedings, reveal the purpose of the symposium, which was designed to draw attention to issues that have diminished the quality of life in Louisiana, while also suggesting means to overcome such challenges.
The exhibit will remain open for public viewing through March 2023.
