Something the Sun Made: Writing and Photography by ARISE Academy 7th Grade

15.00

In Something the Sun Made, Ms. Bolden's 7th grade class drew inspiration from reading A Raisin in the Sun and sought to connect to New Orleans in the same way Lorraine Hansberry masterfully connected the Younger family experience to Chicago. They set out in their neighborhood under the leadership of photographer and teaching artist Maiwenn Raoult to uncover corners and hidden gems while capturing the essence of their New Orleans in an authentic way. Inspired by their photographs, they then wrote courageous testimonials, poetic narratives, and fictitious tales--all centered in the streets of the 9th ward.
