She was the founder of the African American Museum in Baton Rouge, and she was a civil rights leader; Sadie Robert-Joseph's life will be celebrated.

Last Friday Baton Rouge Police officials received a tip to investigate an incident.

Police later found Sadie Robert-Joseph's' body in the trunk of her car. The woman was strangled to death.

Ronn Bell, her tenant, was arrested in connection with her death.

On Monday, July 22, her family, friends, and others who loved her will be celebrating her life at the Living Faith Christian Center in Baton Rouge.

Lead organizer Perry Perkins is asking everyone who is planning to attend to wear African print or black attire.

The address of the facility is 6375 Winbourne Avenue, and the event will begin at 10 in the morning.

Perkins says they will be celebrating this woman's "tremendous life" and her legacy. You can found it out more about the event by clicking here.
