It's been a minute...

While talking with my neighbor about New Orleans several months back, I was taught about native Nawlins culture unbeknownst to me. The Second-Line club was an outcropping of a funeral practices from way back when. The original practice was having a band follow funeral processions and begin the second line once the casket was in the ground symbolizing a triumph of spirit over death. This topic resonated with her because she has been involved in documenting the devastation since Katrina. I applaud her for engaging the difficult and draining task of making a difference.

She is putting together a longer term project, which I am unclear on the details of; however, as they become available I'll post where more information can be found.
