In the city’s active Red River District, the African Archway showcases proud, bright murals that pay tribute to the Black impact on Shreveport. Lastly, Black culture in Shreveport also influences theater – the city’s Theatre of Performing Arts amplifies the work of Black dramatists, along with hosting beloved jazz concerts and workshops.

In addition to comprising the city’s artistry, the Black majority in Shreveport also has notable economic power and support.
