Showing Love: Parades, Mutual Aid, and the Importance of Place
For more than 150 years, African American benevolent associations and social aid and pleasure clubs have supported their members and the broader community by organizing jazz funerals and second line parades. As the parades weave through the city, barrooms and other community spaces host stops, and vendors travel with the second line to provide food and refreshments. Join us for a conversation with club presidents and business owners who will discuss these important networks within the city’s cultural economy and share stories that celebrate the places and people who make second lines happen.

Panelists: Rachel Breunlin, Neighborhood Story Project Norman Dixon Jr., president of the Young Men Olympian Junior Benevolent Association Darryl Press, “Porkchop Man” and cofounder of the Ole & Nu Style Fellas Social Aid and Pleasure Club Steven Elloie, owner of the Sportsman’s Corner bar Perry “Ice Bird” Franklin, owner of Club Good Times II and president of the Keep ’N It Real Social and Pleasure Club Cecile Dalton, owner of Seal’s Class Act
