Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans

Lolis Eric Elie, a New Orleans newspaperman, takes viewers on a tour of the city in what becomes a reflection on the relevance of history folded into a love letter to his storied neighborhood, Faubourg Tremé. Arguably the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of jazz, Faubourg Tremé was home to the largest community of free black people in the Deep South during slavery and a hotbed of political ferment. Here, black and white, free and enslaved, rich and poor cohabitated, collaborated and clashed to create America’s first civil rights movement and a unique American culture. Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans is a tale of heartbreak, hope and resiliency — all set to a soundtrack of fabulous New Orleans music.
