Marianne Fisher Giorlando, "Women At The Walls: Dispelling The Myths Of Women In Louisiana's Antebellum Penitentiary" says
Dr. Fisher-Giorlando will talk about the women who were incarcerated in Louisiana's first state penitentiary - a walled facility - in Baton Rouge in the 19th century. The "Walls," as it was known, was located on the site of the present Federal Court House between Florida and Laurel and 7th and 8th streets in Baton Rouge. Dr. Fisher-Giorlando will share stories about whom Louisiana's convict women were and how they got to the penitentiary, stories that dispel commonly held beliefs about women's incarceration before the Civil War.

This event will be held on the fourth floor of the Earl K. Long Library, and is free and open to the public.
