Dear Reader, with summer '11 upon us, and the Mississippi river subsiding within us, and storm season again taking its rightful place, [ALL HAIL...!] I say: Here's to time!
I am glad to be back home in New Orleans; where one can't go too, too far without bumping into to some sign or plaque acknowledging our history. [I can't help but joke about the sign which was placed, not too long ago, at the end of my block stating the name of my neighborhood as the "Suburb Marigny."]
Nonetheless, I am proud to acknowledge a sign which now stands not too far from my doorstep which reminds us through time of the noble efforts of, the Comite des Citoyens and the courageous actions of, Homer Plessy.
Also, I invite you to view an article in the Washington Post, offering better words than mine with regard to the landmark Supreme Court case, Plessy v. Ferguson. The report also upholds what time has now brought us as well.
Peace & Pops,
Maison Musique, New Orleans
