New Orleans Four Day

Join the celebration of overcoming, redemption and triumph!

November 14, 2021 (New Orleans Four Day) marks the 61st Anniversary Desegregation and the New Orleans Resistance Movement. The city of New Orleans will celebrate the new future home of it's FIRST Civil Rights Interpretive Center at the official site of public-school integration, McDonogh 19 Elementary School located on St. Claude Ave. in the lower ninth ward of New Orleans.

 

The building is now owned by Leona Tate one of the Civil Rights Pioneers who integrated the school. The center will be named the Tate, Etienne & Prevost Civil Rights Interpretive Center after the 3 members of The New Orleans Four (Leona Tate, Gail Etienne and Tessie Prevost) who integrated McDonogh 19 Elementary School building on November 14, 1960. Be a part of the celebration and be there to witness the historic moment of the US Marshals procession motorcade  and escort of the iconic women who integrated McDonogh 19 Elementary school 61 years ago.
