The Edna Karr Cougars will get national exposure as they appear on a new Hulu series that premieres on April 19.
This is a summary of the 5-part series:
“‘Algiers, America: The Relentless Pursuit’ chronicles the journey of Coach Brice Brown and the Edna Karr Cougars – a predominantly Black high school in Algiers, New Orleans – as they chase their future, their dreams, and a fifth state championship in six seasons.”
The school began operation in 1964 as a junior high school. It was named after Edna Karr, an educator who served as a teacher and administrator in the Algiers community. In 1990, the Orleans Parish School Board voted to change
Edna Karr into a junior/senior high school magnet school. Now they serve 9th through 12th grade and is run by one of the city’s largest operators, InspireNOLA Charter Schools.
Edna Karr High School students are now in a new, state-of-the-art building in Algiers on General Meyer Avenue.
