Louisiana’s African American Heritage Trail has expanded and a new website added titled A Story Like No Other.
Excerpt from the website welcome by Mitch Landrieu, lieutenant governor:
“Louisiana is marking the second anniversary of our African American Heritage Trail with its first expansion plus this new website, AStoryLikeNoOther.com. I announced the news today at St. Augustine Church in New Orleans, one of the original 26 trail sites and the spiritual anchor of the Tremé neighborhood.
If you’re not familiar with it, Tremé is America’s oldest African American neighborhood. It is the place where jazz was born. And it is home to four sites along the trail. Today’s announcement coincides not only with the start of Black History Month but with the beginning of the neighborhood’s bicentennial commemoration. Happy birthday, Tremé!…”
