Residents weigh in on what should be included on Louisiana Civil Rights Trail
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - On Tuesday, Sept. 24, people gathered at the Capitol Park Museum to plan out the new Louisiana Civil Rights Trail.
The trail will highlight places and people in Louisiana that played an important in the civil rights movement.
This follows several get-togethers on the topic since the spring. The goal of the meetings is to figure out different locations and events across the state that helped shape Louisiana’s role in the civil rights movement.
“What makes me proudest is the passion of the people from all walks of life, and all ethnicities, have come together to help put this project together,” said Norman Robinson, a facilitator of the event.
