As a part of Tulane’s second annual Sex Week, author and Tulane professor Lisa Wade will be speaking about hookup culture on campus, taking into account important factors like race, gender and virginity.

Piety Market in Exile

Saturdays at New Orleans African American Museum

March 20, 11 a.m.

On the third Saturday of every month, NOAMM welcomes the community to their museum to celebrate community and support Black-owned businesses. The event will host vendors, farmers and artists. Admission to the museum will also be free, but visitors are encouraged to look into a NOAMM membership to support Black museums. 

New Orleans French Film Festival

March 23-31

2021 marks the 24th year of the New Orleans French Film Festival, a festival dedicated to celebrating classic and contemporary French film. This year includes films from many up-and-coming directors such as Logan Leblanc, Rosine Mfetgo Mbakam and Jordi Gueyrard. Films will be screened outdoors at The Broadside, as well as available for streaming at home. If your French isn’t quite up to par, don’t fret — all films will have English subtitles.
