MAHALIA JACKSON THEATER


The Mahalia Jackson Theater of the Performing Arts is a theater located in Louis Armstrong Park in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was named after gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, who was born in New Orleans. The theater reopened in January 2009, after being closed since the landfall of Hurricane Katrina.
ARMSTRONG PARK


Louis Armstrong Park is a 32-acre park located in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana, just across Rampart Street from the French Quarter. In the 1960s a controversial urban renewal project leveled a substantial portion of the Tremé neighborhood adjacen
to Congo Square.

CONGO SQUARE


Congo Square is an open space, now within Louis Armstrong Park, which is located in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana, just across Rampart Street north of the French Quarter. The Tremé neighborhood is famous for its history of African American music.
PRESERVATION HALL


Preservation Hall is a jazz venue in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. The building is associated with a house band, a record label, and a non-profit foundation. In the 1950s, art dealer Larry Borenstein from Milwaukee managed what would become Preservation Hall in the French Quarter as an art gallery, Associated Artists.
DOROTHY MAE TAYLOR (FORMERLY AUDUBON CHARTER SCHOOL)

In 1986, a French component opened within the school that has been extremely effective for a new cadre of students. The French government took note, and in 1990, Audubon became an official French School in an historical agreement between the French Government and the State of Louisiana. In 2002, the French government designated our school as a center for effective strategies in the teaching of a foreign language.
