Throughout the 1800s, Faubourg Tremé was home to the most prosperous and politically
active black community in America. Black and white, rich and poor, free and enslaved
individuals and families co-habitated, collaborated and clashed there to create much of
what defines New Orleans culture. Combining pre- and post-hurricane footage with a wealth
of never-before-seen images, Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans is a
riveting tale of hope, heartbreak, endurance and haunting historic parallels.
