"Thank you Gaynell! You did a great job dealing with a tough topic and I think you helped the campers make some very personal connections to the enslaved women’s life experience."
"I thought that your presentation was very interesting. Your energy and enthusiasm on the subject was contagious! We’re extremely interested in further research."
Interactive History Lessons
Mammy's was created to facilitate lessons for all learners. Through facilitated interactive lessons, children engage, construct, and learn difficult topics such as slavery, emancipation, reconstruction, and freedom for all. Young audiences will become immersed in themes of self-sufficiency, strength, tenacity, and courage.
"Teaching and interpreting difficult topics to children isn't an easy task; however, it's what I was born to do."
Participants are invited to learn about the lives of Louisiana's Mammies. Stories are heart-felt and very relevant to Louisiana and American History.
During customized presentations, students will examine artifacts, interpret articles, and participate in various hands-on activities.
Engagements can be facilitated in classrooms, libraries, community center, home, church, museum, and fields.
Mammy's has provided kids activities for local festivals such as Congo Square Rhythms and Louisiana Cajun- Zydeco.
