State prisoners in Louisiana donated $11,350 to a Black museum in Baton Rouge that was started by a well-known and loved community activist who was slain last year.
Inmates in the Louisiana Department of Corrections gave the gift to the Odell S. Williams African-American Museum, which was founded in 2001 by Sadie Roberts-Joseph. The museum, named after an educator from Baton Rouge, had been closed since Roberts-Joseph, 75, was found dead in the trunk of a car last July, allegedly suffocated by a man who had been renting from her and who had fallen behind on the rent, reported WBRZ 2.
