Telling It on the Mountain: Ashé's Cultural Summit


By Lucy Leonard

In 2018, the city of New Orleans will celebrate its tri-centennial. But Luther Gray says that there are many changes that still need to be made in the city before then. To kickstart those changes, Gray, the Community and Cultural Programs Coordinator of Ashé Cultural Arts Center, helped found the annual Douglas Redd Cultural Summit. Now in its eighth year, this year’s summit on June 6 aims to bring New Orleans artists together and specifically to organize Afro-Orleanians in the art and cultural community.
