Born of the resilient skills of Native American builders and shaped by the endeavors of African, French, Spanish, German and West Indian artisans and craftsmen, a new Creole culture emerged in a vast untamed delta landscape.

Yet much of this treasure trove of Louisiana's architectural heritage teeters on the edge of obscurity.

Fire, flood, Mother Nature and the efforts of man himself are erasing the past.

"These represent some of the finest works that men, whether they were free or slave, produced at that point in time. And it was the great talents of these people that made these houses possible."
-Dr. Eugene Darwin Cizek, Tulane University

"A lot of people haven't wanted to look at this side of our history, but we owe it to them to honor their accomplishments and to tell their stories."
-Kathe Hambrick, Director, River Road African American Museum

Feature Running Time: Approx. 60 minutes - Color. Standard Version 4:3 Aspect Ratio - Not Rated
