COMMON ROUTES

$35.00

Common Routes
St. Domingue • Louisiana
Exhibition Catalogue

From European contact through the present day, St. Domingue (Haiti) and Louisiana have been bound together by shared economies, cultural enterprises, and peoples. Common Routes: St. Domingue • Louisiana, a ground-breaking exhibition at The Historic New Orleans Collection in the spring of 2006, illuminated this shared history. The exhibition catalogue features essays by noted scholars—Franklin Knight, John Garrigus, Laurent Dubois, Gilles-Antoine Langlois, Alfred Lemmon, and John Lawrence—as well as reproductions of images and artifacts featured in the exhibition. Readers will find the stories of individuals rooted in the intersection of cultures and re-routed across oceans in search of fortune or freedom. Among the protagonists are the thousands of émigrés who settled in Louisiana in the wake of the Haitian Revolution. Their civic and artistic contributions imbued New Orleans with a distinctive cultural dye that marks the city’s character to this day.
