28th Anniversary of the River Road African Museum

We invite you to join us for a magical evening in New Orleans for The Black Magic Show for this year’s 28th-anniversary celebration. The show will feature Magician Ran’D Shine, a silent auction, and an evening of entertainment you’ll never forget.  

For museum patrons unable to attend in person, you can still join the celebration by participating in our month-long virtual auction that will launch on August 24, 2022, through the evening of the event. The auction will feature a historical collection of artifacts, vintage magazines, dolls and action figures, African statues and masks, and sports memorabilia. All donations and a portion of auction proceeds will benefit the River Road African American Museum, allowing us to continue in our service to the families and tourists visiting the River Parishes. We hope you’ll consider being one of our valued attendees or sponsors for this extraordinary event!
