Posted: Jun 16, 2021 4:43 PM

OPELOUSAS, LA –A few months ago, Glenn Armentor learned about The Rural African American Museum in Opelousas and the incredible work of its founder, Wilken Jones, to preserve the customs and history of rural African Americans in St. Landry Parish and made a donation of $2,500.

The museum runs solely on the generosity and donations of members in our community. Glenn Armentor and fellow Glenn Armentor Law Corporation attorney Christian Lewis are returning to The Rural African American Museum to celebrate Juneteenth on this Saturday, June 18th, 2021 at 1:00 PM with another donation of $5,000 to help keep the museum open and operating.

Glenn Armentor and everyone at The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation are dedicated to preserving the important history of African American families around Acadiana. The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation itself is located in a landmark with strong ties to local Black History.
