Until Herman is able to finally win his legal battle and walk out of Angola Prison a free man The House will be maintained by an existing network of volunteers. Immediately The House will serve to reinvigorate the social and physical economy of New Orleans where Herman Wallace spent his childhood. Already there is a network of volunteer contractors, architects, and engineers ready to serve the community and begin constructing Herman’s House. Herman has asked that until his conviction is overturned and he walks out of Angola, The House be used as a community space committed to youth outreach and education.
The House is designed with a library, conference room and several guest bedrooms for “visiting activists and organizers” to stay in. It is designed to be an open space that facilitates the exchange of ideas, art and activism- a space to live and dream, and it welcomes all. Maintaining this integrity, The House That Herman Built has formed an official alliance with Leadership Discovery, a center for at-risk youth in New Orleans area, dedicated to the prevention of juvenile substance abuse. Ultimately, (maintaining the integrity of its community focus), The House will be a place for Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox to retire safely.
