Darlene Labat Lee
DAY 122 Darlene Labat Lee photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).
My grandparents, Joseph Sumner and Carmen E. Labat (she delivered me), came to the Hall. My dad, Bernard Labat, was a member of the organization. We performed at Mardi Gras balls and our parents had us involved in all of it. I am 12 years old in the photograph of the kids at the Hall [also on the mural]. I remember my grandparents getting ready to come over here to go to the dances. They saw Percy Sledge, Solomon Burke, Irma Thomas and Ernie K-Doe. When I got older I attended dances here too.
