34. Interview with Lamar White, Jr., about "CenLamar"

34. Part 1 of our interview with Lamar White, Jr., writer and editor of the CenLamar Blog.
Lamar has been interested in local politics and history for many years,
and his blog has a wide following.  He is currently attending the
Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, but he continues to
report and comment on Louisiana politics on his blog. He has allowed the
Louisiana Anthology to cross-post one of his articles, “Why 12 Years a Slave Will Always Matter to Louisiana,” discussing his personal connections to the story of Solomon Northup.  We encourage you to read his blog and learn more about life and politics in Louisiana.
