Something the Sun Made

A collection of poetry and photographs created by young authors in responce to A Raisin in the Sun. Young artists worked with photographer Maiwenn Raoult to uncover corners and hidden gems of their own neighborhood with the goal to capture the essence of their New Orleans in an authentic way. Inspired by their photographs, they then wrote courageous testimonials, poetic narratives, and fictitious tales--all centered in the streets of the 9th ward.
