  • Description
    Mahalia Jackson Statue

    Mahalia Jackson Statue is located in her home town, New Orleans, next to a theater commemorating her memory, the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts, at Louis Armstrong Park.

    Jackson was born in 1911, singing from a young age, but only years after moving to Chicago, rose to fame as the “Queen of Gospel”, introducing the genre to the world.
    Besides singing, she was an activist in the Civil Rights Movement.

    The statue was made by Elizabeth Catlett, an African-American graphic artist and sculptor (who also made the Louis Armstrong statue in the park), and which she dedicated to the city in April 2010.
