We Women- Lady Blue Devils Project
Ashley Teamer + Annie Flanagan
In 1973, after the passage of Title IX, Mary Dixon Teamer founded Dillard University’s Lady Bleu Devils in New Orleans, Louisiana. Nearly 50 years later, Mary’s granddaughter, Ashley Teamer, along with friend and collaborator Annie Flanagan, have documented the present day Lady Bleu Devils team over the course of two years. They’ve witnessed them become the 2018 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference champions as well as how their deep interconnections and unwavering community grew over the seasons.
Through a billboard series in New Orleans coming this year, their project inserts Black women in the landscape of the city, highlighting the significance of the team and the relationships and complexities of each player in their pursuit of athletic and academic excellence at a historically Black university.
Naked On The Floor
Local jazz favorites, Naked on the Floor features Jonathan Freilich on guitar and compositions, James Singleton on bass, Doug Garrison on drums, and a three-piece assorted woodwind section of Rex Gregory, Derek Douget and Dan Oestreicher. This band has existed in assorted lineups since the early 1990s, always as a venue and vehicle for Jonathan’s deeply unique songbook that crosses between jazz and many aspects of world-and-culturally-wide styles and traditions.
Another Gulf Is Possible
Another Gulf Is Possible Collaborative is a women-of-color led, grassroots collaborative of ten members from Brownsville, Texas to Pensacola, Florida. This collaborative is built upon decades of organizing resulting in a strong and rooted ecosystem of relationships between individuals tied to a multitude of organizations, networks, communities, and alliances from the US Gulf South to the Global South.
