F3_9 A People's Guide to New Orleans: Resistance in the Treme
Organizers: Elizabeth Steeby (A People’s Guide to New Orleans/ University of New Orleans), Lynnell Thomas (A People’s Guide to New Orleans / U Mass Boston)
This walking tour will visit sites just outside the French Quarter, with a focus on the historic African American neighborhood, Treme, and the area annexed to create Armstrong Park. Within just a few blocks, we will map an ongoing legacy of religious, cultural, and political resistance. In the spirit of the forthcoming People's Guide to New Orleans, we will offer counter-narratives of city icons and sites, considering, for example, Louis Armstrong's response to segregation, St. Augustine Church's role in post-Katrina social protest, and communal archiving of Mardi Gras Indian history.
