194. J.B. Borders IV, part 1

194. Part 1 of our interview with J. B. Borders IV.  Borders has written the book, Marking Time, Making Place: An Essential Chronology of Blacks in New Orleans Since 1718. Considered the birthplace of jazz and gumbo, and habitat of the fascinating blend of black and European blood called creole, New Orleans is the site of historical and cultural contributions that include music, cuisine, architecture, and politics. J. B.'s timeline starts in 1718 and notes the major names, events, and locations involving African Americans in New Orleans for the last 300 years.

  2. This week in New Orleans history. Born in New Orleans on February 6, 1944, Wilson Turbinton (known as Tee and Willie Tee) arranged, co-wrote and led the band on the Wild Magnolias' self-titled 1974 debut album. The popularity of that recording, and the subsequent They Call Us Wild introduced the Mardi Gras Indians' street-beat funk to the world.
