202. Emily Clark, part 2.

202. Part 2 of our interview with Emily Clark about her research on Ursuline nuns and free women of color. We finish interviewing Emily about her book, Masterless Mistresses: The New Orleans Ursulines and the Development of a New World Society, 1727-1834. Emily was the first secular historian allowed into the archives of the Ursuline convent in New Orleans.  She found a treasure trove of information about the early history of the Ursuline nuns and their work in New Orleans. We also talk to her about her book, The Strange History of the American Quadroon: Free Women of Color in the Revolutionary Atlantic World. The free women of color in New Orleans played a distinct role in New Orleans and American culture.
