No one knows it but New Orleans is the birthplace of the Southern Civil Rights Movement.

Faubourg Tremé, the oldest black neighborhood in America is located just outside the French Quarter in New Orleans.  Treme was home to the first civil rights movement, the first black daily newspaper, black businesses, and more.

Take a walk with us through this historic neighborhood, site of economic, cultural, political and social events that have shaped the course of Black America over the last three centuries.
