Living Creole and Speaking It Fluently
This is an important book, because many people, even Creoles know little or nothing about the history of the Creoles. Their history began in the year 1719 when the first cargo of slaves were brought to the United States. Some blacks were freed in France and the Carribean, came to New Orleans as cooks, housekeepers and hairdressers for the rich French ladies. At first these people were called (Les gens de couleur libre) the free people of color, after the Civil War they were called the free Creoles of color, and shortened to just Creoles. In the 1800s they had their own idenity that was neither black or white, not slave or completely free. "There is no state in the union, hardly any spot of like size on the globe where the man of color has lived so intensely, made so much progress, been of such historical importance as in Louisiana, and yet about so little is known (Alice Dunbar Nelson).
