The Amistad Research Center has weathered Hurricane Isaac quite well, with only very minor window damage and absolutely no damage to the interior of the buildings or to any collections. Similarly, Amistad staff have fared well. As of this morning, the Amistad Research Center is up and running on our normal schedule.
We appreciate the messages from dozens of concerned Amistad Research Center friends and supporters regarding our status in Hurricane Isaac.
Come stop by tomorrow for Culture Collision 2012 from 5:30 to 8:00 at Generations Hall in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. All Amistad staff will be there to share information about upcoming programming and ongoing activities. The Amistad Research Center will be closed to researchers at 3:00 tomorrow (September 5) for Culture Collision.
