  • "Do you know that books smell like nutmeg or some spice from a foreign land? I loved to smell them when I was a boy. Lord, there were a lot of lovely books once, before we let them go."

  • "Silence fell over the Cosmic Brotherhood members like a heavy fleece blanket. All eyes were closed, all necks tensed, all breaths on hold. The moment of a manifestation had come. Maestro exhaled loudly, opened his thin, sinewy arms and raised them to the sky, "I am Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans!" he yelled in a high-pitched voice that bore no resemblance to his usual baritone, professional tone. "I’ve come to Havanna to proclaim love, unity and peace." —from "The Astral Plane" by Teresa Dovalpage

  • "My main statement is I’m an African American from New Orleans, but I wanted to put things in here that people outside of New Orleans could relate to as well. Through the masks, through the figures, books, and images, I can have other conversation pieces in here that expand the museum and challenge people to consider who they are connected to."

    — Ronald Lewis, from The House of Dance & Feathers

  • Bidding farewell to National Poetry month with a short piece by New Orleans legend Everette Maddox:

    Twilight on the Verandah: Poem for Banjo

    Dance on you blue firefly
    glowworm
    lightning bug
    moth
    moonbeam
    Japanese lantern
    will-o’-the-wisp
    with somebody else
    I’m only a shuffler myself
    and if I touched you
    you’d pop
    like a lovely party favor
    all over Oak Street
