There’s always something to do in Nola! Check out my curated event list for Black professionals in New Orleans this week.

You’ve spent all day working hard trying to get over the Monday blues, come spend a few hours every third Monday setting the tone for your own personal happiness and the rest of the work week by celebrating yourself and your fellow professionals.
