Description

Sybil Haydel Morial's memoir reveals a woman whose intelligence overrides the cliches of racial division. In its pages, we catch rare glimpses of black professionals in an earlier New Orleans, when races, though socially isolated, lived side by side; when social connections helped to circumvent Jim Crow; when African-American culture forged New Orleans and American identity.
