64 Parishes

Winter 2019


Our winter 2019 issue of 64 Parishes, featuring cover art by Lafayette-based artist Denise Gallagher, explores some of Louisiana’s hidden histories. Criminologist Marianne Fisher-Giorlando uses archival photography to take us inside The Walls, Louisiana’s first state prison, now under downtown Baton Rouge. Anthropologist Denise Bates interviews Linda and Bertney Langley, custodians of the Coushatta Tribal Archive, and managing editor Chris Turner-Neal reports on the longest-running gay Mardi Gras krewe outside New Orleans, the Mystic Krewe of Apollo de Lafayette.

The issue also includes:

Plus stories by our partners at the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, The Historic New Orleans Collection, the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, and the Shreveport Regional Arts Council.
