Dewing What He Can: Lil’ Wayne Cuts Ribbon on 9th Ward Skate Park


Hollygrove native Lil Wayne returned home today for the Isaac-delayed opening of his Mountain Dew sponsored skate park to the Ninth Ward community. The centerpiece of the “DEWeezy Project,” the park is located in the Lower 9th Ward Village, and is a cooperative venture between Brad Pitt’s Make it Right Foundation, California Skate parks, and Weezy F Baby himself.


Lil Wayne to Open Lower 9th Ward Skate Park


After showing inklings of a little more generosity toward his hometown around Thanksgiving, Lil Wayne is injecting one of his passions into an effort to give back to the Crescent City. Weezy is more into skating than rapping these days, and he's set to open an indoo skate park in New Orleans to showcase his newfound love. The Lower 9th Ward Village will house the new spot to ollie and grind, which is being designed by Make it Right Foundation architect Tim Duggan.


Afrikan Film and Arts Fest Explores Women and Children


Cinephiles are on pins and needles as the New Orleans Film Festival is set to roll out the red carpet next weekend. But, to tide us over, this weekend offers film and culture from a distinctly African American perspective at the Mississippi River 9th Ward Film and Arts Festival. Presented by New Orleans Afrikan Arts and Culture, this year's roving festival uses film to explore "youth, women and the violence they endure and overcome." Panel discussions will explore race in New Orleans as is it relates to the justice system, and global relations. And, of course, there will be music.


Mama NOLA Heading to Burning Man


This year the great unwashed masses going to Burning Man festival are going to see a 20-foot voodoo doll and temple go up in flames. “Mama NOLA” is her name, and she was designed by the New Orleans CORE team who will be representing the Gulf South region at this year's festival.


Moth Money Moth Problems

Characters USA & The Moth Unite



In an area as rich in the tradition of oral histories and storytelling as the clay beneath our feet, New Orleans is absolutely seeped in generations of lived and shared experience through spoken word. Finding roots in the preservation of history and culture through the African Diaspora, storytelling has been premiere in defining the geo-social space, vitality, and effusive value of the city; from Congo Square to the front porch.
