The purpose of this bibliography is to collect primary and secondary materials related to race in New Orleans. We seek to advance a critical engagement with race in the history and culture of New Orleans, from the colonial period to the present, through a wide variety of source material. The bibliography is also organized into a series of subtopical views. These topical views are not intended to simply list possible sources for research, but also to invite debate and discussion over how the study of race in New Orleans is most productively categorized and thought. What do these subcategories illuminate? What do they obscure? Join the conversation!
Some suggestions for essential starting places are noted with double asterisks in the Main Bibliography below. Sub-categories are available for the following topics:
- Beyond Black and White
- Civil Rights and the New South
- Civil War and Reconstruction
- Class and Gender
- Culture, Politics, and Law
- Free People of Color and Creoles of Color
- Hurricane Katrina
- Slave Trade and Slavery
