Faubourg Tremé : the untold story of Black New Orleans( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long ago during slavery, Faubourg Tremé was home to the largest community of free black people in the Deep South and a hotbed of political ferment. Here black and white, free and enslaved, rich and poor co-habitated, collaborated, and clashed to create much of what defines New Orleans culture up to the present day. Founded as a suburb (or faubourg in French) of the original colonial city, the neighborhood developed during French rule and many families like the Trevignes kept speaking French as their first language until the late 1960s. Tremé was the home of the Tribune, the first black daily newspaper in the US. During Reconstruction, activists from Tremé pushed for equal treatment under the law and for integration. And after Reconstruction's defeat, a "Citizens Committee" legally challenged the resegregation of public transportation resulting in the infamous Plessy vs. Ferguson Supreme Court case. New Orleans Times Picayune columnist Lolis Eric Elie bought a historic house in Tremé in the 1990s when the area was struggling to recover from the crack epidemic. Rather than flee the blighted inner city, Elie begins renovating his dilapidated home and in the process becomes obsessed with the area's mysterious and neglected past. Shot largely before Hurricane Katrina and edited afterwards, the film is both celebratory and elegiac in tone

American Utopia( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Llano del Rio Cooperative Colony was America's most successful socialist Utopia. The experimental community practiced such social reforms as an eight hour work day, the minimum wage, social security, and quality education and cultural activities, through cooperation ... a generation before Roosevelts' New Deal. During its 25 year history over 10,000 people called the colony "home." Most amazing is that the colony thrived, not in California, where it began in 1914, but in conservative Louisiana."
