2020 Mini-Festival: LAGNIAPPE

Although we had to postpone our 2020 festival, we have planned a wonderful series of events to enjoy together -- our 2020 LCCMF Lagniappe!

Repeated acts of police brutality, and the attempts to suppress peaceful protests across our country, are part of a deeply-embedded, centuries-long tradition of racial injustice, violence and oppression of people of color.
