“These are not just photographs on a wall. These are people, and many families in New Orleans can trace their histories to this place. We’re telling our own stories, as we should be. This is family history, yes, but this is also Louisiana history.”
So says Jennifer Williams, director of the McKenna Museum of African-American Art, and curator of a photography exhibition on predominantly African-American communities in the River Road, “Becoming Home.” Recently extended from its appearance with PhotoNola, and now on view through Mardi Gras, this is a rare, compelling exhibition, and one not to be missed.

Cruise ships are weird things, like a cross between a resort hotel and an airplane. It serves the purpose of being your method of transportation, lodging, dinner, and entertainment, all rolled into one. They are also vessels of pure gluttony and relaxation, yet it somehow maintains a sense of adventure.
I just got back from one, my first actually, last week. I was leery of going on a cruise, no doubt. About 8 years ago I found David Foster Wallace’s book A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments in a used book shop. In it there’s a detailed account (in an essay of the same name as the book) that perfectly sums up the cruise experience, albeit in the most cynical of ways. It’s a hilarious, accurate, and a damn good read. Since I can’t top what Wallace wrote, I’ll leave you with my travel diary to peruse instead.
Political punditry has been turned into a hazardous occupation by the ups and downs of the Republican presidential primaries.
Just a month ago, it seemed pretty safe to speculate that Mitt Romney was on his way to locking up the Republican Presidential nomination and that Newt Gingrich was toast. Now, after the South Carolina primary, a victorious Gingrich is riding a wave of momentum while Romney is struggling to regain his credibility.
But amid so much growth, the prospect of a second attempt to take over a failing New Orleans school in 2013 provoked rare dissension within the International School’s governing board.
