Jeanerette Museum:
The World Will Move Exhibit

WHO: Jeanerette Museum 


WHERE: 500 E. Main St., Jeanerette, LA. 70544


WHAT: The World Will Move Exhibit  


WHEN: Jan. 26 - March 6, Tuesday - Friday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.




The Jeanerette Museum is hosting the traveling exhibit, The World Will Move: Civil Rights and Public Transportation in Louisiana 1860s-1950s.


The exhibit from the Louisiana State Museum will use vintage photographs, prints, newspaper articles and artifacts to tell the story of African Americans who challenged discrimination on streetcars, steamboats, trains and buses. The museum will also present photographs of local transportation.


"The new exhibit on transportation will help the museum to highlight Jeanerette's own unique transportation history," said Gail Garcia, vice chair of the museum. "The Teche Transfer Company bus line began in Jeanerette, became the Teche Lines and later in history was consolidated into the Greyhound Lines.  The Jeanerette Museum is planning to present this history through photographs and materials while also hosting history talks."
