96. Interview with Richard Sexton about Creole World. Part 1.

96.  Part 1 of our interview with photographer and writer Richard Sexton, author of Creole World.  "Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as " the nothernmost Caribbean city," with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny. Richard Sexton traveled to and photographed not only in Havana, but throughout Cuba, in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba, Haiti, and other locales. The culmination of these travels has resulted in Creole World, which immerses the reader in an exotic world they would never be able to see on their own."
  1. This week in Louisiana history. March 21, 1804. French Emperor Napolean Bonaparte enacts a new legal framework, the "Napoleonic Code," which gives France its first coherent set of civil and criminal laws. It will later become the basis of Louisiana Law.
  2. This week in New Orleans history. The Great New Orleans Fire (1788) was a fire that destroyed 856 of the 1,100 structures in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 21, 1788, spanning the south central French Quarter from Burgundy to Chartres Street, almost to the riverfront buildings. An additional 212 buildings were destroyed in a later city-wide fire, on December 8, 1794.
