9780807126011: Creole: The History and Legacy of Louisiana's Free People of Color

The word Creole evokes a richness rivaled only by the term's widespread misunderstanding. Now both aspects of this unique people and culture are given thorough, illuminating scrutiny in Creole, a comprehensive, multidisciplinary history of Louisiana's Creole population. Written by scholars, many of Creole descent, the volume wrangles with the stuff of legend and conjecture while fostering an appreciation for the Creole contribution to the American mosaic.

The collection opens with a historically relevant perspective found in Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson's 1916 piece "People of Color of Louisiana" and continues with contemporary writings: Joan M. Martin on the history of quadroon balls; Michel Fabre and Creole expatriates in France; Barbara Rosendale Duggal with a debiased view of Marie Laveau; Fehintola Mosadomi and the downtrodden roots of Creole grammar; Anthony G. Barthelemy on skin color and racism as an American legacy; Caroline Senter on Reconstruction poets of political vision; and much more. Violet Harrington Bryan, Lester Sullivan, Jennifer DeVere Brody, Sybil Kein, Mary Gehman, Arthi A. Anthony, and Mary L. Morton offer excellent commentary on topics that range from the lifestyles of free women of color in the nineteenth century to the Afro-Caribbean links to Creole cooking.

By exploring the vibrant yet marginalized culture of the Creole people across time, Creole goes far in diminishing past and present stereotypes of this exuberant segment of our society. A study that necessarily embraces issues of gender, race and color, class, and nationalism, it speaks to the tensions of an increasingly ethnically mixed mainstream America.

From the Back Cover:

Who are the Creoles? The answer is not clear-cut. Of European, African, or Caribbean mixed descent, they are a people of color and Francophone dialect native to south Louisiana; and though their history dates from the late 1600s, they have been sorely neglected in the literature. Creole is a project that both defines and celebrates this ethnic identity. In fifteen essays, writers intimately involved with their subject explore the vibrant yet understudied culture of the Creole people across time -- their language, literature, religion, art, food, music, folklore, professions, customs, and social barriers.

"Multicultural before there was a name, racially constructed before there was a theory, international before there was a discourse, Louisiana's Creoles have much to teach us about the specific history and production of a remarkable people as well as about the larger, overarching, fluid, and complicated issues of culture, nation, and race. This extraordinary interdisciplinary collection, wide-ranging yet judiciously focused, is a powerful and necessary addition to the twenty-first century studies of race and culture." -- Thadious M. Davis, author of Southscapes: Geographies of Race, Region, and Literature

"Conservative or liberal, black, white, or griffe, all Louisianians should find this book a fascinating read -- an insight into the complicated political and social battles that shaped our state's history and still affect our society today." -- New Orleans Magazine
