Exploring New Orleans' Laura Plantation and the Faubourg Treme neighborhood

World Footprints

Louisiana's Creole culture and a famed New Orleans' neighborhood share the spotlight on today's show. Our Creole cultural exploration takes us just outside New Orleans to the Old Mississippi River Road where we'll share the story of a Creole family and a plantation named Laura--voted "Best history tour in the USA" by Lonely Planet Travel and a top travel attraction in Louisiana. Laura Plantation, named after Laura Locoul Gore, is an old sugarcane plantation over 200 years old. We experienced life on the plantation as a member of the Locoul family through the voice of one of Laura's decendents, Norman Marmillion. We will also visit Faubourg Treme with filmmaker Dawn Logsdon. Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of the civil rights movement in the South. Treme is a place where African-Americans lived free during slavery and became a place of social and economic diversity.
