An Oral History of the New Orleans Ninth Ward

We’ll have a lengthy review once we receive our copy of Caroline Gerdes’ “An Oral History of the New Orleans Ninth Ward” but suffice to say we are excited about this release.

Ms. Gerdes grandmother grew up in the 9th Ward and while the younger Gerdes was matriculating at LSU she received a grant from National Geographic to pen a history of New Orleans best known community.

Country Roads magazine has a piece on Gerdes here.
