Join author Tara A. Dudley for a reading and conversation of her award-winning book, Building Antebellum New Orleans: Free People of Color and Their Influence, a deeply researched examination of the free 19th-century Black craftsmen and real estate developers who transformed the cultural and architectural legacy of New Orleans. Highlighting excerpts from the book, Dr. Dudley will discuss her motivations, process, and methodologies to tell a story of the architectural activities and influence of gens de couleur libres—free people of color—and how they expressed group identity through property ownership and built culture in New Orleans.
