Black New Orleans Archival Research Seminar

[Black NOLA]


Black New Orleans Research Seminar [Black NOLA] examines the development of a unique African/American cultural and political identity in New Orleans, beginning with the founding of the city in 1718.


Seminar members conduct individual guided research projects and make use of archival materials and library special collections. Roundtable discussions provide a forum for seminar  members to explore alternative interpretations and applications of received history/narratives, and to present specific research questions for consideration by the group as a whole.
