An Oral History of the New Orleans Ninth Ward

The story of this influential yet often-overlooked section of New Orleans, in the words of its former and current residents.
Steeped in musical influence, racial dynamics, and culinary significance, the Ninth Ward has distinguished itself as one of New Orleans’ most influential communities, with an impact reaching far outside the confines of a single city. So why is its history so often overlooked?
In this oral history, unique, multi-generational interviews, extensively researched and carefully recorded, preserve the experiences of former and current residents and the rich history of the district. Each source honestly evaluates discrimination, neighbors, poverty, and faith, delivering heartfelt and often harrowing insight into what it means to be from the Ninth Ward.
