Stories from Prison / Honoring Ancestors

Courtesy of: Benjamin D. Weber

Prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, sent stories about loved ones who had passed away while they were incarcerated, and described how they would like them to be commemorated. Students from the University of New Orleans performed commemorations and sent letters and pictures back to the prisoners.
