The Historic New Orleans Collection hosts a free screening of a documentary on Huey P. Long's death.
In conjunction with its current exhibition “From Winnfield to Washington: The Life and Career of Huey P. Long,” the Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC) will host a screening of the 2014 documentary 61 Bullets, which looks at the deaths of Huey P. Long and his alleged assassin Dr. Carl Weiss. The screening will take place Sunday, July 12, 1 - 4 pm, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with filmmaker Yvonne Boudreaux and interviewees Alecia Long, Associate Professor of History at Louisiana State University; and Michael Wynne, a collector of Huey P. Long materials.
The exhibition “From Winnfield to Washington” commemorates the 80th anniversary of Long’s death. Visitors will see items that reveal details about Long’s life and career. The more than 140 documents, maps, objects, and photographs on view were selected from regional collections and THNOC’s holdings. The display is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and Sunday, 10:30 am - 4:30pm, through October 11, 2015.
Admission is free to both the exhibition and the screening.
