Author(s): John W Blassingame

Reissued for the first time in over thirty years, Black New Orleans explores the twenty-year period in which the city#`s black population more than doubled. Meticulously researched and replete with archival illustrations from newspapers and rare periodicals, John W. Blassingame#`s groundbreaking history offers a unique look at the economic and social life of black people in New Orleans during Reconstruction. Not a conventional political treatment, Blassingame#`s history instead emphasizes the educational, religious, cultural, and economic activities of African Americans during the late nineteenth century. #Blending historical and sociological perspectives, and drawing with skill and imagination upon a variety of sources, [Blassingame] offers fresh insights into an oft-studied period of Southern history. . . . In both time and place the author has chosen an extraordinarily revealing vantage point from which to view his subject. ## and Neil R. McMillen, American Historical Review
