Tangipahoa African American Pioneers

Are there people in your community who should be remembered?

Many African American Pioneers of Tangipahoa Parish help shape the foundation of the parish. Pioneers like Dr. Percy Walker became the first African American veterinarian. Folks like Alexander Richardson owned and operated his own Funeral Home. Willie Kiddes Gordon built a dormitory at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for young black males who were attending college.
