Legacy Series: A Conversation with Carolyn Jones

We are partnering with the North Louisiana Civil Rights Coalition as they present the “Legacy Series” at our Main Branch! The first presentation will be a conversation with Carolyn Jones, who integrated Caddo Parish Public Schools as a six year old more than 50 years ago. She will share her unique experience as both a pioneer in local civil rights legacies, and an entrepreneur in the beauty industry. Carolyn Jones is currently the owner of the historic Modern Beauty Shop — first opened in 1958 — where she has cultivated a longstanding career in cosmetology, activism, and service in Shreveport.
